Memphis Prepared For 
Awful Catastrophe. 


Memphis. Tenn.. March 22. — Toclay 
the tliKvd situaiiufi may l>e compared or 
likened unto as the ■"calm before the 
storm." V>ecause the Mississippi i-egis- 
tered a fall of 0.1 in twenty-four hourrs. 
which is taken tt» mean heavy I-reaks 
in the levees ahove. foretellins;' an aw- 
ful calamity to the country south of 
here. The government pautre taken at 
10 o'clock shows a depth of thirty-seven 
feet. Southward, no levee breaks fur- 
ther than already recorded in these dis- 
patches are reported. 

From Memphis the work of relieving 
distressed humanity continues, each 
hour swelling the relief fund. Gover- 
nor Jones' (of Arkansas) cold message, 
denying any knowledge of suffering:, is ' 
denied by the Memphis Press in terms > 
calculated to make that official reply , 
or recall the words u^ed. There is some 
talk here, and in points in Arkansas of j 
mass meetings denouncing the < hief '■ 
exevUtive"s action. 

Relief boats continue to ply between 
this point and the immediate over- 
flowt^gl districts, landing at each trip 
st-veral hundred of the homeless. Fair 
weather is predicted ft.r this section. 

sary legislation may result. We are 
glad to feel assured at the outs-ot that 
your pergonal sympathy must be with 
us. and t!iat your otticial sanction will 
be givt-n til this reijuest. so clrarly in 
the interest of morality." 


Minneapolis. March 2_'.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Special dispatches to the 
Journal today from points along the 
Missouri river indicate that the situa- 
tion is much relieved and there is no 
immediate danger of serious floods. The 
river has broken above Vermillion. S. 
P.. and is runnin.g freely, while the cool 
nights atK)ve have checked the flow of 
snow water. The ground is absorbing 
much of the moisture and along North 
Dakota points on the river Ice Is solid 
for several days to come. 

The Yellowstone and the large afflu- 
ent.-? are yet unbroken so there is lit- 
tle danger of gorges. The snow in the 
entire northwest could hardly go off 
better than it is going. 

Cedar Ftapids. la.. March 22.— Cedar 
river at this p-^int has risen two feet 
an<l a half within twenty-four hours 
and still higher water is reported at 
points above without damage to bridges 
dams and low lands. A portion <>f the 
dam here was taken out. No further 
damage is anticipated here, but the %va- 
ter will probably three feet more 
l>efore Tuesday night. 


The W. C. T. U. Appeals 
President McKinley. 


Chicago, March 22.— A knockout for 
pugilism in America is the purpose of a 
giant blow aimed today. No less a 
man than the president of the United 
States is to administer the knockout, 
unless mishap comes to far-reachins 
plans which were brought to a focus 
this afternoon. President McKinley Is 
to have the aid of congr^-ss, and of the 
governor and legislature of every slate 
in the Union. That at least is the in- 
tention of the national officers and 
m»-mb»Ts of the Woman.-;' Christian 
Temperance union. An appeal was for- 
warded today as follows, signed by 
Francis M'illard as president of the 
National Women's Christian Temper- 
ance union, and Secretary Steven.son: 
"Chicago. March 22. — To his excellency 
the president of the United States: 
Honored Ruler: As the ofllcial repre- 
sentatives of the 30«>.o.>o members of the 
Womans' Christian Temperance union 
of the United tates. we earnestly en- 
treat you to call upon ton.?ress to pro- 
hibit, in the District of Columbia and 
throughout the various territories, the j 
reproduction, by means of the kineto- 
scope or kindred instruments, of the 
Corbett-Fitzsimmons Sght. or of any 
like exhibition at any future time. 

"We believe that in making this re- 
quest we are seeking the best welfare 
of the citizens, especially the youth of 
our land, who should not be brutalized 
by such life-like representations of 
these degrading spectacles. We learn 
that preparations upon the largest seal? 
are being made for invading, not alone 
our great cities, but every village and 
hamlet, with this spectacular perform- 
ance; so that bad as the influence 
of th3 fight upon the comparative few 
who witnessed it in person, it would be 
:nflnlt*'ly worse, because so much 
more far-reaching, if thus produced. 

"We are making a like request of the 
chief oflflciais and legislatures of the 
various states, and have strong hope 
that, in the majority of them the neces* 

Supreme Court Kills the Trans- 
Missouri Agreement. 

Washington, March 22. — The supreme 
court has decided the case of the United 
States vs. the Trans-Missouri Freight 
association against the railroads. The 
opinion was rendered by Justice' Peck- 
ham, and reverses th^ decision of the 
court below and holds the anti-trust 
law of ISi^O to be applicable to railroad 
traiispoitHtiua and the traffic agree- 
ment of the pool illegal. 

Justice Peckham reviewed the his- 
tory of the case, and stated the con- 
clusions of the court in a very few 
w.irds. He said that the bill had origi- 
np.lly been filed by the government for 
the purpose of securing the setting 
aside of the agreement operating in 
the southwest, which constituted the 
association, to fix rates of transporta- 
tion to which the various roads consti- 
tuting the pool should agree. The bill 
was filed under the law known as the 
Sherman anti-trust act of ISUO 

The d.^fendants had in their answer 
denied the government's allegatio:is, in 
respect especially to the point of im- 
proper intent, and upon these showings 
th? case proceeded to a hearing. The 
court below decided that the Sherman 
act did not apply to railroads, and 
therefore refused to sustain the gov- 
ernment. It Avas also held by the lower 
court that even if the act did apply, th." 
agreement was not one looking to the 
*'unreasonable restraint" of trade. 

Continuing. Justice Peckham said 
that when the case was brought into 
the supreme court the defendants had 
moved to dismiss the appeal on the 
ground that the freight as.sociations 
had been dissolved, leaving nothing be- 
fore the court, and also on the allega- 
tion that the amount involved was not 
sufficient to justify the consideration 
of the case in the supreme court of tin- 
United tates. These motions were both 
overruled by the court's conclusion-, 
announced today. 

Justice Peckham said the mere dis- 
solution of the association did not de- 
termine the question, as there was still 
relief to ba had. Taking up the case 
on its merits, he said the court had 
reached the conclusion that th.^ Sher- 
man act does not cover the question of 
railroad transportation, and that the 
agreement l)etween the various roads 
is within the prohibition of the act. 
Hence the decision of the lowe,r court, 
which was favorable to the contention 
of the railway companies, was reversed 
and the case remanded. 

Justices Field. Gray. Shiras and Whirv-^ 
dissented. Justice White delivering the

Oakland. Md.. March 22.— The search 
for the bod.v of Gen. Joseph S. Fuller; 
ton. of St. Louis, who was killed in a 
[ railway accident on Saturday, was re- 
sumed this mornin.g at daybreak. The 
searching party was reinforced by a

Denver, Col., March 22. — The snow 
storm 'which began Saturday continued 
until 9 a. m. today. Throughout East-

Washington. March 22.— What will go 
down to history as the tarill" debate of 
lf-!t7. began in the house at 10 o'clock 
this morning. Despite the early hour 
'<i assmibling. there was a large at- 
ti ndance on the floor, and the gailcri^'s 
shoued evidence of the great interest 
manifested in the proceedings. Mi: 
Din-gley and Mr. Bailey, the opposing 
leaders, were early in their places. Uy 
th-' terms of the rule under which tlie 
h'luse was to oi)erate during the c-on- 
sideiation of the bill the house imme- 
difitely re:<olved Itself into committee 
of the whole and the speaker conferred 
ui)on Mr. Sherman the distinguished, 
honor of presiding over the conimittet. , 
Those who t xpected the debate lo i 
begin immediately were disappointed. 
The leaders decided not to dispense 
with the reading of the bill, but to have 
it read in full at the out.^et in order 
to disarm the criticism passed on i)rc- 
vious l)ills that they were put through 
without even having been read in the 
house. The spectators In the galleries 
and the numbers on the floor v.ailed 
while the d.rk droned through ttie IG"! 
pages of the bill. 

The leading i>f the bill cnnsuincd a 
little over two luairs. .so it was 2:;iO iie- 
fore the leader of the majority, Mr. 
Dinglty. was recognized to open tli.- 
I debate. Mr. Dingley's voice i^ not very 
j strong, and he usually has some difli - 
1 culty in making himself heard, but to- 
I day he .opoke with great deliiteration 
I and his tones were clear and ringir/g. 
[ Mr. Dingley bc^gan by stating that 
' congress having been convened in •. xtra 
I session, the facts that had led to the 
Issuance of the president's messag? 
were: That the government revenu;^s 
during the past four years, had been i.i- 
sufficient to meet expenditures to the 
extent of more than $200,000,000. or an 
average- of J,')O,0O0.O0O per annum: that 
this deficiency will continue to grow 
under existing conditions: that the de- 
ficiency has been met by borrowing, 
that is by bond sales, and that this has 
promoted distrust, intensirled and pro- 
longed the run on thj treasury, ami 
weakened business conildence. This 
deficiency of revenue has nearly all 
arLsen from a falling oft' of revenue 
fnmi duti.'s on imports — and not from 
a decline of revenue tt om international 

In revising the tariff, , he said, the 
committee have endeavored to discard 
mere theories and have addressed 
themselves to the framing of a practi- 
cal remedy, at least in part, for the ilia 
which have for so many nmnths c»ver- 
shadowed t'ne country. It is a c onditior: 
and not a theorv which confronts us. 
Our problem is to provide adecjuate r3V- . 
enue from duties on imports to carr>- I 
on the government, and in imposiiij; y 
duties to secure this result to adjust 
them so as to secure to our own peopl 
the production and manufacture tj 
such articles as we can produce or make 
for ourselves without natural disad- 
vantage, and thus i rovide that abund- 
ant opportunities for our labor. I 
No economic polic y will jirove a sat- I 
isfac-tory one it shall in some 
manner contribute to opening up em- 
ployment tc» the masses ctf our people ' 
at good wages. When this is acconi- I 
plished and thus th..> purchasing power ' 
of the masp(?s restor^'d, then — and not 
until then — will prices cease to feel the 
depressing effect of under-consump- 
tion and the prosperity of our people 
rise to the standard of '!t2. The past 
four years have been enlightening, 
especially to candid investigators of 
eccmomic problems. We have been at- 
tending a kindergarten on a large scale. 
The tuition has come high, but no peo. 
pie ever learned so much in so brief a 
time. Hereafter theories, preached in 
however captivating language. will 
have to give way to the teachings of ex- 

Mr. Dingley then gave some statistics 
relative to the Importations and tariff 
on woolens, and said that liy placing 
wool .on the free list the treasury lost 
$21,000,000 revenue and the farmers $30,- 
000.000 per year, and that the country 
had not been able to increase its ex- 
poits of manufactured wool. It had 
been chaimed, he went on, that the price 
of clothing ha<l been reduced, but this 
was only in appearance, because p -opl<- 
had been deprived of work and wages 
and found it harder to buy clothing 
than before. The new schedule would 
aid the Vv'ool grower, incrc-ase manufac- 
tures and ultimately increase the rev- 

Speaking of the sugar schedule. Mr. 
Dingley said it would increase the rev- 
enue and encourage sugar production 
in this cotmtry. He explained the 
sugar schedule in the following state- 
nient: "The proposed duty on sugar is 
.specific, according to polarscoplc test 
of the degree of saccharine matter, 
commencing at 1 per cent per pound for 
sugar polarizing not more than 75 d?- 
grees, and increasing the duty threeone 
hundredths of 1 per cent for each ad- 
ditional degree. This would make the 
duty on raw sug,ar (100 degrees) 1% 
cents. To this is added one-eighth of 
1 cent for such sugar above 16 Dutch 
standard in color (refined sugar), mak- 
ing the duty 1 cent and eighty-seven 
and a half hundredths. This eighth, 
with whatever may be added liy the 
countervailing duty on all sugar im- 
» ported from export bounty pa.ving 
countries, is the protection which, it is 
believed, will maintain the refining in- 
dustry here, notwithstanding the pres- 
ent diffjrential of one-eighth and a 40 
per cent all around duty, is double that 
propesd. This will be the cmly differ- 
tial between raw and refined sugar, be- 
cause If the refiner uses sugar of less 
saccharine strength than 100, as he 
must, it requires proportionately more 

of such sugar to m^ike a pound of re- 
fined sugar." 

i^ditinuiiig, Mr. Dingley said that the 
increase on flax and h -mp was nuide 
both in the interel*t of nvenue and be- 
cause there was a gre-at promise of 
home production. As to other increases 
of duties in the bill to .McKinley rates. 
Mr. Dingley said: "For the most part, 
otherwise the increase of duties de- 
pending bill to the figures of tariff of 
'90, have been schedules or paragraphs 
covering luxuries like tobacco, liejuors, 
silks, lace, etc., which, being articles 
of voluntary consumption, are always 
regarded as objects whic h will bear the 
highest duties. The exi>'ptions are the 
earthenware and .glass schedule and 
the agricultural schedule, on which th^? 
duties have been placed, the same as in 
the act of '90, because no other rate 
seemed to b:> protective." 

Mr. Dingley then l»riefly touched ui)on 
some sc hedules which had not been ma- 
terially changed from the present la^. 
These included ircm and steel and cot- 
ton, "in all other schedules," con- 
tinued Mr. Dingley. "the nites proposed 
in the pending bill are between the 
lates of the tariff of '90 and the present 
law. There has been transferred from 
the free list c>f the tariff of '94 to the 
dutiable list of the proposed bill not 
only wool, salt, burlaps. ba'<?s, cotton, 
bagging and cotton tics, which never 
shoubl have been made non-dutiable, 
but alsi> argots, crude opium, asi)hal- 
tani, i)aintings and statuary, except 
when .imported for free exhibition by 
an established institution; stiaw orna- 
ments, ete.. which under existing con- 
ditions ought to contril'Ute something 
towards the much-needed additional 

S«j far as imssible the aim has been 
to avoid exclusively ad valorem duties 
on articles which have been notorious- 
ly under-valued and thus failed to pay 
the duties intended — a loss of revenue 
which has been more serious than eve r 
under the pre.'^ent tariff, in which, out- 
side of the metal and eotton schedule. 
almost exclusively ad valorem rate.^ 
prevail. The better class of iinportery 
have united with manufacturers and 
administrators of the law in asking for 

Mr. Dingley next discu.ssed at some 
length the ad valorem jmd specific sys- 
tems. and presented figures showing how 
disadvantageously the ad valorem sys- 
tem worked. He then presented the es- 
timates as to the probable revenue; that 
would be raised by the bill, v.hich were 
given in his report with the supr>le- 
mental statement that the second year 
the bill would yield .'JlOd.itOd.OOO increased 

In cle.sing Mr. Dingley said: "It must 
be obvious from any point of view that 
prompt action by the t\^ > houses of con- 
gress is indispensible tn secure the rev- 
enue which the pendinvi liill is intended 
to yield. The exigency is an unusual 
one. The people, without regard to 
party affiliations, are asking for action. 
Busi!iess awaits our final decision. 
With this great question of adequate 
revenue to carry on the government 
settled favoraldy. by such an adjust 
ment of duties as will restore to ot^r 
own people what has o-en surreiideied 
to others during the past four years, 
with restored confidence in the future, 
there is reason to believe that gradu- 
ally and surely there will come back to 
us the great prosperity which we en- 
joyed in the decade mior to '93, and 
which the greatest of living English 
statisticians so striki"*gly . eulogized 
v.hen he said in '92 that "It would be 
impossible to find in history any pai - 
allel to the progress of the United 
States in (then) the last ten years.' " 

Mr. Dingley was followed by Geu. 
Whteler. of Alabama, who opened the 
case for t'ne minority.

the city yesterday from Duluth with 
her two children, aged S and 9 years, 
find made inquiries at the central police 
station lor her husband, who is well 
known in Duluth and has been engaged 
in the lumber business for some years. 
She says that Saturday he received 
several hundred dollars as his share of 
the estate of a deceased I'elative, and 
that he told friends that he was going 
to St. Paul. He had all his money with 
him, she says, and she fears that some- 
thing has happened to him. No trace of 
Maher could be found here yesterday. 

Duncan Maher was a driver for

St. Paul, March 22.— (Special to The

misioners in counties of over 7.'>,000 to

2'/^ mills on assessed valuation for 
hospital purposes. Ramsey, Hennepin 
and St. Louis delegation. 

The house then went into committee 
of the whole, Jacobson presiding, for 
ccmsideration of .general orders. 

By a vote of ;17 to IS. Senator Thrope's 
bill for civil service in the grain in- 
spection department, was killed. The 
Foell plumbers' license bill was recom- 
mended to pass. 

Mr. Vail's bill for the protection of 
laborers on or about mines was taken 
up and Mr. Vail offered an amendment 
in the nature of a sul)stitute, to obvi- 
ate what seemed like an illegal provis- 
ion. The substitute was ordered 
printed and the measure laid over for 
the present so that members could see 
the sub bill, the amendments being 
adopted. The new bill is "to provide 
for a lien for labor employed in the 
development and working of mines." 

Section 1 provides that "any person 
who performs any labor in and upon 
the development or operation of any 
mine (when such labor is done and 
performed at the request of th.- owner, 
lessee or contractor, owing, leasing, de- 
veloping or operating such mine), shall 
have a lien for the value of such ser- 
vices done and performed, which lien 
shall be upon the interest of such own- 
er or lessee of such mine and its appur- 
tenances, and to take precedence of all 
other Hens and incumlirances; jjrovid- 
ed. that if such labor is done and per- 
formed by or for a lessee, or his con- 
tractor, the lien herein provided for 
shall only be a lien upon the inten-est 
of such lessee, and shall not affect the 
rights, or be an in •umbrance upon the 
interests of the owner of such mine or 

Section 2, Mining, stripping, drilling, 
test piting. shaft sinking, tunneling, and 
labor (.n the land, shall be decerned laL> 
or on and upon the development or op- 
t^ration of any mine, within the mean- 
ing of this act. 

Section 3, The lien herein provided 
for shall be enforced in the same man- 
ner now provided by law, or any amend- 
ments hereafter; for the enforcement 
of liens for labor done upon buildings 
and structures. 

Mr. Vail explained the changes in the 
bill and agreed to the postponement in 
order to allow members to learn more 
about the provisions of the liill. 

Another bill by Mr. Vail was acted on 
during the morning. This was H. F. 
270, to provide for the election of county 
mine inspectors and to define the duties 
and qualifications of such officials. Mr. 
Staples raised the legal point that the 
law could not properly provide for such 
specific qualifications of the official, and 
prrjgrcss was reported in order to allow 
tim.e for the preparation of a few minor 
amendments, but the sentiment was 
clearly in favor of the bill. 

When the committee reported the 
Thorpe civil service bill was exceote.l 
from the report and laid on the tabic 
fi)r the present. 

H. F. 308. Mr. Vail's material lien bi.l. 
will have a substitute presented later in 
the day, as follcSws: 

Section 1. Any person who furnishes 
any material or mining supplies used in 
and upon the development or operation 
of any mine, v.hen such material is, or 
supplies are. furnished at the request of 
the owner, lessee or contractor owning, 
leasing, developing or operating sucii 
mine, shall have a lien for the value of 
such material or supplies; which lien 
shall be upon the interest of such 
owner or lessee of such mine and its 
appurtenances, and take precedence of 
all other liens and insumbrances. ex- 
cept labor liens; provided, that if such 
material or supplies is or are furnished 
for a lessee for his contractor, such lien 
herein provided for shall not affect the 
rights or be an incumbrance uoon the 
interests of the ov.ner of such mine or 

Section 2. The lien herein provided 
for shall be enforced in the same man- 
ner now provided by law, or any 
amendments hereafter, for the enforce 
ment of liens for labor done upon build- 
ings and structures.

tralian Itasehall team is expected to ar- 
rive here in a few days. It will make a 
tour .if the I'nited Slates, and if tli« 
judgment of those who claim to know i.^ 
correct, it will Rive American pla.vers a 
hard l>att|p for the first place in the 
Itasehall world. The men have been 
carefully selected and are said tt» !>e a 
line, steady lot of players. Most of 
them are well-known cricketers, and 
they expect the experience f^ained at 
Knplands national same will stand 
them in pood place in the effective 
handling »>f a haseball l>at. In lieMlnj;: 
the team is said to lie exceptionally 
stronjr. and the catchinj; is spoken of as 

Sinvrleton. one of the team, has the 
record »>f being: the liest second base- 
man in Victi ria. .\. S. W.. is a sood 
lielder and a tirst-rate batter. 

Kvers is also iriM>d at the but and is 
a fast pitcher. He stands high as a 
l>layer in South Australia. 

McKay is tiie jiioneer baseball mem- 
ber ami is a sood man all around. He 
is the smallest man in the team and one

The drowning: of a woman is a shudder- 
some sijfht. Vet it i.s swift and compara- 
tively pamless, and blissful, compared to the 
pain and a^ony suffered for many years by 
many thousands of women. Most of the 
suffering endured by women may be traced 
to one great, agpravatiajf .set of disorders. 
The woman who does not take proper caje 
of the organs distinctly feminine is sure to 
be sickly, nervous, fretful, and racked with 
pain. She i.s unfitted for wifehood and 
motherhood. Kvery woman owes it to her- 
self to be strong: and healthy in a womanly 
way. She may insure this if she will use 
the proper remedy. i 

iThe greatest of all medicines for weak 
and suffering women is Dr. Pierce's Favor- 
ite Prescription. It acts directlv upon the 
delicate organs that make wifehood and 
motherhood possible. It makes them 
healthy and vigorous. It cures all weak- 
ness and disease. It allays inflammation 
•soothes pain and stops weakening drains! 
The nerves become steady, and calm, and 
health resumes its natural swav throughout 
the sy.stem. It prepares for wifehood and 
motherhood. Over «^,ooo women have tes- 
tified to its marvelous virtues and all good 
druggiEts sell it. 

Ignorance of her own physical n.iture is re- 
itponsible for a great deal of the pain and suf- 
fering that woman undergoes. I)r Pierce's 
Common Sense Medical Adviser is the best 
medical txxjk for the home. It is now on 
the lKX)ksheIvfs of over a million Aiftcrican ' 
hou.sehold.s. Sc\-eral chapters of the Ijook are 
devoted to the diseases anti of the 
organs distinctly feminine. Kverv woman .should

■U'ashington. March 22.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— The congressional direc- 
tory containing the biographies of the 
members of the Fifty-fifth congress has 
just been issued. These short bi- 
ographical sketches are interesting, 
simply be<'ause they are written by 
the members themselves at the request 
of the clerk of the printing records of 
the house. The new member from 
the Sixth district of Minnesota has this 
to say of him.self: 

Page Morris, of F^uluth. was born 
June W. ],s."i:?. at Lynchburg, Va.: edu- 
cated at a private school and at Will- 
iam and Mary college and the Vir.ginia 
Military institute: graduated at the 
' latter institution in 1S72. and was at 
I once appointed assistant professor of 
j mathematics: in 1S7:J was appointed 
profes.sor of mathematics in the Texas 
I Military institute, and removed to Aus- 
tin. Texas: in 1S76 was elected professor 
[ of applied mathematics in the Agricul- 
I lural and Mechanical college of Texas, 
located near Bryan, in that state, where 
j he remained for three years: studied 
law while teaching college, and was ad- 
! mitted to the bar at Lynchburg, Va.. 
whither he had returned, in ISSO: in 1S84 
was nominated by the Republicans and 
ran for congress in the Sixth district of 
Virginia against John W. Daniel. Dem- 
ocrat, and was defeated: in 1886 re- | 
moved from Lynchburg to Duluth. i 
where he has resided since; in Febru- ' 
ary. 1SS9. was elected municipal judge 1 
of the city of Ouluth: in March. 1894. i 
was elected by the city council of Du- 
luth city attorney: in August. 1S9.-.. was 
appointed by the governor district 
judge of the F:ieventh judicial district 
of Minnesota; in July. 1896. was unani- 
mously nominated by the Republican 
congressional convention for congress, 
accepted the nomination, and immed- 
iately sent to the governor his resigna- 
tion of the office of judge, to take effect 
Sept. 1. .so that he might make the cam- 
paign; on November .1. 1S96, was elected 
to the Fifty-fifth congress as a Repub- 
lican, receiving :;0.212 votes, against 2!t.- 

Lawrence. Mass.. March 22.— The 
worst fire this city has known since the 
burning of the Washington mills, six 
years ago. completely dismantled the 
Gleason building, one of the best busi- 
ness blocks in Lawrence early today, 
and resulted in the injury of eight per- 
sons and the of property valued at 
at least $100,000. The injured are: 

John Mowering. left leg injured. 

Mrs. John Bowering. ribs liroken. 

Miss M<Kenzie. head injured: serious 

William Gallagher, baillv burned. 

Bemard Gallagher. overcome 
smoke and .seriously burned. 

A. S. Hunter, slight burns. 

W. R. Robinson, left wrist fractured, 

Most of those hurt are now in the hos- 
pital, but it is not expected that anv 
deaths will result. 

The Gleason building was a 6- 
.s^tory stone and brick building. The 
Central h« one of the leading hotels 
of the city, adjoined it on one side and 
the Pedrick & Closson building, which 
IS Walsh's hotel, on the other. The .'. 
and 10-cent store of Abbott & Co.. oc- 
cupied the basement and first floor of 
the building. The rest of the block was 
taken up with offices, dressmaking and 
millinery rooms, several lodging rooms 
and a photograph gallery on the top 

The roof of the Central house caught 
lire and Pedrick & Clo.sson's block on 
the other side were in great danger. 
I>ut they were saved from destruction 
by the efforts of the firemen. The Glea- 
son building was <)vvned by the (Jleason 
heirs of Methun. and was fully 
insure<l. One of the heaviest losers by 
the fire will be Abbott & Co.

Like many another man Mr. House did 
not know what ailed him. and attributed 
the pains to a strain or wrench of the 
mu.sdes. He tried liniments, but they 
never touched his Kidneys. He tried plas- 
ters he tried all sorts of applications but 
he did not reach the .seat of trouble. 

The medicine that took away the pains- 
took them awa.v for good, so that

In a letter written by Mr. him

War Declared Against It By 
Union Men. 

Chicago, March 22.— War against Chi- 
cago beer has been declared by the Chi- j 
cago Federation of Labor at Its regular i 
weekly meeting. A gigantic boycott, 
in which all organized labor will be ' 
urged to unite, was launched against j 
the product of all breweries that are i 
members of the Chicago Brewers' asso- ' 
elation, and will take effect April 1. i 
Union men who wish to drink beer will 
be expected to buy the product of Mil- 
waukee or St. Louis breweries and to 
refuse to patronize any saloon supplied 
by any of the seventy members of the 
brewers' combine. 

Grievances of Cooper's union, No. 1. | 
against the Loyal Brewers precipitated 
the action of the federation. John Mc- I 
l^herson. the delegate from the coopers, 
who was present at the meeting, ex- j 
plaitied to the federation that the coop- I 
ers had vainly tried for a year to in- 
duce the l>rewers to use barrels and 
kegs made by union workmen, and now j 
asked that decisive m^-asures be taken j 
at once to force the manufacturers to : 
comply or to place their product under | 
the 'nan of united labor. The sentiment ! 
of the labor men was for battle.

Berlin, March 22.— The cervmonies at- 
tending the celebration of the centen- 
ary of the birth of Emperor William I. 
! grandfather of the present emperor, 
which began yesterday, and ends on 
Tuesday next, continued today com- 
mencing with an ear-ly visit of the em- 
peror and empress to the Mausoleum 
of William I. Thousands of people 
lined the Fest Strasse which was bril- 
liantly decorated from the castle to the 
Brandenburg gate. Their majesties, 
who received an ovation all along the 
route, spent a quarter of an hour in sil- 
ent prayer at the tomb and returned 
to Berlin soon after 9 o'clock. The 
weather was cloudy, but no rain fell. 

At 9 o'clock the troops decor-ated with 
the new memorial medal and detach- 
ments of sailors took up the positrons 
assigned to them in Unter Den Linden 
and at 10:30 a. m. the emperor, in the 
uniform of the Garde Du Corps, arrived 
and was welcomed with enthusiastic 
hurrahs, "Plochs," and the waving of 
handker-chiefs. The two eldest prin- 
ces had previously joined the body 
guard company of the First- regiment 
of guards. After riding in front of the 
troops, his majesty halted before his 
late grandfather's palace and ordered 
the flags and standards stored there in 
(which had been decorated with laurels) 
to be brought out. The emperor then 
rode at the head of the colors and led 
the troops to Festival square.

develop Cook county property, and as

Rush to the Gold Fields Is 
Under Way. 

Wheat began the week in n decide<lly 
wobbly condition, with a bearish senti- 
ment prevailing. Cables showed a slight 
I de(-line and while crop report.s were 
; mixed, the general outlook secme<i more 
. favorable than a year ago. Northwest 
receipts were fair. Minneapolis and Du- 
luth reported a total of 3W cars against 
I .Vil last year. The liquidation which had

I The exports to Europe and the T'niied 
Kingdom were stated to be 2.957.000 bus. 
whereas the weekly requirements of the 
importing nations are about 7.000.000 bus. 
Yet the visible is estimated to 
have increased 203,000 bus last week. In 
view of such seeming stultification of the 
statistical figures, ii is not wonderful to 
find the trade either disregarding or mak- 
ing fun of them. The amount of wheat 
and flour on ocean passage decreased 1.- 
120.000 bus last week. Liverpool stocks 
decreased about 190.0i>0 bus. Russian 
stocks were reported about equal to (pian-

Circulate a Petition Against 
Abolishing Kindergartens. 

The proposition now before the 
school board to dispense with a num- 
ber of kindergartens has aroused a 
great deal of opposition among par- 
ents of children now attending that 
branch of the public school, and the 
following petition to the board has 
been prepared and Is being extensive- 
ly circulated for signatures today. 
To the Honorable the Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Duluth: 
It having come to the attention of 
your petitioners that the abolishment 
of a portion of the kindergarten sys- 
tem is contemplated by your hoard, 
and that the matter is now under ad- 
visement Ijefore you, but not yet de- 
termined upon, therefore, we, the un- 
dersigned, residents of Duluth and 
parents of children in the public 
schools, do hereby most earnestly pro- 
test against any reduction of the pres- 
ent number of kindergartens, or any 
diminution of their present efficiency 
and u.sefulness. 

It has been the wise policy of our 
state to so distril)Ute its public lands 
that the school system may be abund- 
antly provide with funds for the most 
e.xtensive exercise of the educational 
privilege. We believe that under the 
management of the Duluth board of 
education these vast funds have been, 
for the most part wisely us€'d for the 
benefit of the school children of this 
city. But we further believe that no 
branch of the pid)lic eduction has pro- 
duced more far reaching and benefi- 
cent results, has been more Important 
and efficient in the upbuilding of char- 
ter and the wise use of the faculties 
of our children than has the kinder- 
garten system as now in operation. We 
can conceive of no way in which your 
large trust can be more properly spent 
than in the continuance of that sys- 

Therefore, we, your petitioners, do 
hereby again most emphatically pro- 
test against any change in this funda- 
mental system of our public educa- 
ti<m, except such change as should in- 
crease the number and add to the effi- 
ciency of our kindeigartens.

Some Figures Comparing Rates 
In Several States. 

The Assureds' Fire association of 
Minnesota has issued a circular which 
is attracting a gtx)d deal of attention' 'he influx will be very great immediate 


Mr. Barnes says that the great bulk 
of the visitors to Rat Portage come 
I from Eastern Canada, with a few from 
I Northern Ohio and New York. More in- 
: terest has evidently been aroused in the 
East over the developments than in 
Minnesota and other states nearer the 
gold fields. As the town of Rat Portage 
is now crowded at a season of the year 
when trips through the country are im- 
practicable. Mr. Barnes concludes that 

in Duluth. The association is com- 
posed of business men throughout the 
state. Hon. A. F. Stebbins. of Roches- 
ter, is president. B. C. Church, of Du- 
luth, is one of the vice presidents. A. 
Fitger, of Duluth, is on the executive 
committee, and S. E. Olson, the Min- 
neapolis dry goods man, is also on 
the committee. 

The circular gives figures proving 
that Minnesota pays more for insur- 
ance than a large number of states. 
Comparisons are made with Michigan. 
Virginia. Wisconsin. Illinois, Maine, 
Ohio. Massachusetts, Connecticut, 
Rhode Island and New York. Minne- 
sota insurance in 1896 amounted to 
?2.">6.L'T1,054..'>3 and the premiums paid 
on this amounted to $3. 925.. "567. -36. The 
losses aggregated $1,798,962.40, leav- 
ing an excess of premiums amounting 
to $2,126,404.75 or an average of $8.40 
per $1000 of premiums in excess of In not one of the other states 
named does the excess reach that 
amount. In New York the excess was 
•^nly $3.89 in 1896. In Wisconsin it was 
$7.77 the nearest approach to Minne- 
-sota. The average throughout the coun- 
try for 1895 was $:i.57 and the average 
throughout the country for thirty-four 
years has been an of $3.29 per 
$10<JO of nremiums over losses. It is 
difficult even f<»r one of the skillful 
manipulators of insurance figures in 
the light of this to show that Minnesota 
is not paying too much for insurance. 

The circular also declares that the 
method of making arbitrary rates is 
vicious. The legislature is called upon 
to investigate these facts.

W. JI. Smith was sworn in as a 
member of the board of public works 
by City Clerk Richards<m this morn- 
ing. Mr. Smith's offlcial bond, in the 
sum of $5000, with James Foley and P. 
A. Haley as sureties, which was filed 
with the comptroller for his approval, 
was not passed by that official on the 
ground that the statement of the condi- 
tions was not full enough, and it will 
be necessary to redraft the instrument. 


Rod Demme of Detroit Passes 
Through the City. 

Rod A. Demme, of Detroit, Mich., ar- 
rived in Duluth this morning and left 
this afternoon for Tower and Mine 
Center, providing the roads make a 
journey to the latter place possible. Mr. 
Demme is heavily interested in the 
Foley Mining company, and it is to see 
Mr. Foley in connection with important 
business matters relative to operations 
in the Seine River country that he is 
undeitaking his difficult journey. He 
has little hope of getting through, but 
while he is pushing alon*g from this end 
of the route Mr. Foley will be coming 
to meet him, and he expects they will 
come together somew heie on the road. 

Mr. Demme is thoroughly satisfied 
with the showing made by the Foley 
mine, and not only expects great things 
of it, but of the entire district. To an 
Evening Herald reporter he said that he 
had just come from Montreal and that 
he found the excitement there over the 
new gold fields intense. There is a gen- 
eral feeling among the moneyed men 
there that the country offers wonderful 
opportunities for investment, and this 
feeling has been greatly intensified bv 
the recent concessions made by the 
Canadian government to the South 
African Charter company, which in re- 
turn for a lease of 60.000 acres of land 
has contracted to expend $20,000 in pros- 
pecting and development this year, $40.- 
000 next year and $60,000 the year fol- 
lowing. The fact that this powerful 
corporation, which has developed such 
great properties in the Johannesburg 
district in South Africa, has deemed it 
worth while to inv^t in the Rainy Lake 
country has had the effect of stimulat- 
ing confidence in Canada and will re- 
sult in attracting much capital that 
would not have sought in-

Sugar Trust Defeats the Ar- 
buckle Action. 

Tfdedo, March 22.— The long expected 
decision of Judge Morris, of the common 
pleas court, in the suit of Arbuckle broth- 
ers against the sugar trust, was deliv- 
ered this morning, and it is in favor of the 
latter. Judge Morris' opinion is Very 
voluminous. L-overitifi: twenty-eight type- 
written pages. He liol<|s that the matter 
of the price at which the company may 
sell its cofff'C strictly i)ertains to the m- agret>ment of the concer;). 
and so long as they act in good faith the 
directors cannot !"• interfered with by 
the court, which cannot retsraiii a cor- 
pt)ratloii fri>ni selliiiic at :i low price, even 
though the minority stockholders can 
show that sound l)usiness discretion 
would dictate a different policy. The tes- 
timony, however, showed that the Wool- 
sons were selling at a fair margin of 
profit. The application for perpetual in- 
junction Is therefore denied. 

With regard to the other point, the 
court holds that the agreement of the mi- 
jority stockholders tu sell the product 
for a time at such a price as will driv.^ 
a competitor out of business, will not 
make the corporation an unlawful con- 
spiracy against such competitor, nor 
liable for his actual loss, nor entitle hini 
to relief in the courts. A competitor for 
public favor must bow to that law of 
trade that allows every man to dispose 
of his own property in the ordinary 
course of business, on such terms as he 
sees tit. The motion for the appoint- 
ment of a receiver is therefore overrulefl.

The Idookude of Crete by the fleets 
of the great European powers to pre- 
vent the annexation of the island by 
Greece has formally begun. It is a 
sorry spectacle to see the great nationt 
protecting the Turks from the loss of 
Crete, when the people of that island 
are struggling to be freed from the des- 
potic rule of the sultan and to unite 
their fortunes with those of the Greeks. 
It is not astfinishing that 

this action should be met 

by a storm of popular disap- 
proval in England. The sympathies of 
the English people are with Greece and 
the Cretans, and the Salisbury ministry 
is taking a serious risk when it joins ir 
"the European concert" to coerce tht 
Cretans into submission to the wishe.>' 
of the powers. A less important matter 
than this has caused the overthrow of 
a British ministry and it will not be as- 
tonishing if the Cretan embroglio shall 
result in the downfall of the Salisbury 
ministr>- and the return of the Liberal?

if he should be willing to accept tht

of integrity of the Ottoman empire.' " 
Has it any meaning? Yes; and it had 
a different meaning in ever>' decade of 
the century now. expiring. Slowly the 
"integrity of the Ottoman empire" has 
been narrowed down until "18.000,000 of

that the integrity of the sultan's do-

should, he pertinently asks, this fiction

lescribing the movement to introduce

-h1 to the scht>ol lM)ard by a representa- 
tive committee. A leading lawyer, in- 
erested in Peoria's Polytechnic scho<il, 
rave it as his opinion that technical 
laining should begin with the begin- 
ning of education, and continue 
through the grades to the colleges and 
'.echnological institutes. The kinder- 
garten he believed to be the rational 
)asis of this training. He pointed to 
he signiiicant fact that country boys 
ire usually in advance of city boys, 
ind explaine<l it on the ground that the 
country is a natural kindergarten 
'here children are thrown largely up-

a Journal man today as opposed to the 
double-headed council plan of the pro-

Not i>nly is a bicameral council with- 
out any good points, l»ut it is an un- 
necessary expense. A double-headed 
council means more city officials. In 
the case of Duluth, it would also mean 
another story to be added to the t ity 
hall, be<'ause there is no room in the 
present building for a, second council 
chamber, and it would be frequently 
necessary for both houses to meet at

council has been a feature of city gov-

turning to the single coimcil idea as the 
best. Dr. .Mbert Shaw, who is recog- 
nized as one of the best authorities in

The Douglas freight rate bill is to 
come . up in the legisla- 

ture this week and will 

probably provoke a lively fight. The 
railroads, naturally, are doing all in 
their power to defeat it, but there Is a 
prospect that the bill may pass despite 
the great exertions that are being made 
in opposition to its passage. The ob- 
ject of the bill is to reduce the freight 
rates on cereals and coal to and from 
Duluth, and is avowetJly in the interest 
of the farmers of the Red River valley, 
who complain that the "existing rates, 
if continued, mean ruin and desQair to 
the masses of the people throughout 
that section of the state. 

A petition to the legislature, signed 
'oy residents of Kittson county, shows 
how the farmers of the Red River val- 
ley are oppressed by exorbitant rates, 
which are declared to be unjust and en- 
tirely out of proportion to the current 
value of the products of tile county. 
The petition says: "The rates on 
wheat, barley and oats especially be- 
ing from 20 to 65 per cent of their val- 
ues. The average net price to farmers 
here on barley from the last two crops 
has been only 12 cents per bushel, while 
the railway charge has been 9 cents. 
Average for wheat for the same time 
(volume considered), has been 42 cents, 
railway charge 10 4-5 cents. Average 
for oats 9 cents, railway charge 6 cents. 
Our farmers have to accept these low 
prices for their products, and pay trib- 
ute to the railway on every ton of hard 
coal consumed of $3.85, on every barrel 
of salt 72 cents, on every barrel of 
sugar $1 or 60 cents per hundred, and 
proportionately high rates on every- 
thing else shipped in, that they con- 

Railway officials and railway attor- 
neys, some of whom may perchance be 
found among the members of the legis- 
lature, may refer to the Douglas hill as 
unjust to the railways, but at the same 
time it should not be forgotten that the 
present freight charges on the products 
of the farmers are unjust, and that if 
the farmers of the Red River valley are

showed that the middle coach was sus-

the fact that the couplings held firmly at 
either end. The car was completely off

The forward trucks of the rear coach

were likewise clear off the ties, so that 
all that held the train together was the

one coach and the forward wheels of an- 
other. Had the engine gone a few feet

Washington. March 22.— Secretary of 
State Sherman has been notified that a 
pacific blockade of Crete was begun at 
1» o'clock Sunday morning. The notifi- 
of An- cation was made in concert l)y the rep- 
resentatives of the six powers signatory 
to the bill in treaty— Great Britain. 
Prance. Italy. Germany, Austria-Hun- 
gary and Russia. The language of tht 
several notes is almost identical. They 
formally announce the commencement 
of the blockade of Cretan ports against 
ships flying the Greek flag. It is fur- 
ther declared that merchant vessels of 
neutral powers, including those of the 
United States, will not be disturbed in 
their usual commercial ventures, pro- 
vided their cargoes contain no merchan- 
dise for use by the Greeks or insurgents 
of the island. Such vessels, however, 
will be subjected to inspection by the 
"blockading warships of the concerlod 

There is little likelihood that the 
United States will give its assent to the 
l>lockade. or. in fact, even notice tht? 
communications of the several powers. 
Secretary Sherman said that the mat- 
ter, because of its remote interest to 
this government, had not been consid- 
ered in any way. It is not likely to re- 
ceive consideration until a merchant 
vessel of the United States, attempting- 
to enter Cretan ports, is prevented by 
the blockading ships. The master of 
the American ship would in this case 
call the matter to the attention of the 
department, and President McKlnley 
and his advisers would then have to de- 
cide upon a policy. In view of the fact, 
however, that only three vessels flying 
the American flag passed through the 
Suez canal in '95, two of which were 
private yachts and the third a warship, 
and only one, also a warship, in '96, it 
is apparent that there is little possibil- 
ity of the United States becoming in- 
volved in the Cretan trouble. 

While Secretary Sherman declined to 
discuss the matter in any way, thf 
other officials of the state department 
take the ground that if the occasion 
arose the United States would be likely 
to refuse to recognize the blockade. 
There are no direct precedents for re- 
fusing to give such recognition, but 
there are many eminent international 
lawyers who contend that "pacific 
blockades" for the purposes of ctiercion 
are" in violation of the law of nations.

to rediuinir the chiefs pay. Chief '

Will Do Some Lobbying. 

Joseph Sellwood and J. B. Cotton ; 
went to St. I'aul last night to lobby ; 
against the bills pending in the legis-

disadvanageously. The Reeves bill. 
which in its present form l)rovldes fori 
the taxation of iron properties on a ' 
l)asis of fi\e mills per ton. will come 
up for consideration in the house to- 1 
morrow. All of the St. Louis county 
delegation are opposed to this measure 
not so much because the proposed tax 
is unjust, but because they object to 
the assessment and taxation of St, 

For Its Retention. 

Rev. G, PI, Humason, pre\ ious to his 
evening sermon at the First Methodist 
church last evening, read the editorial 
In The Saturday Evening Herald 
against the abolition of the kindergar- 
ten system, and said that to everything 
it contained he would re.spond "amen." 
He made a strong argument in favor 
of the kindergarten. It prepares the 
child's mind for the reception of knowl- 
edge. By a subtle process the imagin- 
ation of the child is systematically 
played upon and gradually and uncon- 
sciously its mind is turned into right 
and proper channels until it is ready to 
receive knowledge. He told of his visit 

Louis county property being taken out 1 to the kindergarten, and of what he 

of the hands of St, Louis county offi- 
cials. Repitsenlative Schmidt, who was 
in the city yesterday, returned to St. 
Paul last night to oppose the bill with ! 
his full energy. While there is some 
likelihood of the Reeves bill passing j 
the house it is altogether probable that 
it will meet with defeat in the senate. I 
Most of the iron mine and railroad | 
measures are being supported by the 1 
same leaders in the house and it is ; 
not thought improbable that one of | 
the ore freight rate reduction bills will 
be favorably considered. '

He had gone but a short distance whtu 
he was accosted by. two men. who at 
once appeared to be on friendly terms 
with him. McCaslin said that at first 
he suspected his companions, but as 
they were so affable and pleasant lit 
later trusted them. The three had 
walked about a block when one of the 
men stooped down and picked up. ap- 
parently from the sidewalk, a small 
lock. The finder examined the lock, 
opened it and then handed it to McCas- 
lin. who also opened it and returned 

A little later the man who found Hit 
lock said to McCaslin: "I'll bet you $10 
that you can't open that lock again, " 
at the same lime handing a lock that 
appeared to be the same one to the man 
from Duluth. McCaslin refused to btt, 
but agreed to hold stakes for the other 
two men if they would bet. The third 
man said he had no money, but said h.. 
would stake his watch against $10 that 
he could open the lock. The stakes 
were put in the victim's hands and the 
man who had bet he could open the lock 
went at his task, 

Just at this moment another person 
appearefJ on the scene. Seeing McCas- 
lin with the money and watch in his 
hand he walked up to him and. grasi>- 
ing him roughly by the shoulder, asked 
him what he was doing. McCaslin re- 
plied that he was holding stakes for tht 
men who had made a bet, whereupon 
the stranger showed a police star and 
said: "Dtm't you see I am a police 
officer? I guess I want you, as I think 
you are a man we have been looking 

In vain did the victim plead his inno- 
cence. In spite of his protestations the 
assumed detective searched him to see 
if he had any weapons, and at the sam^ 
time, McCaslin says, the man took $U.i 
from him. After searching McCaslin. 
and at the proposal of the other twc 
crooks, the third man allowed him his 
freedom, and the three disappeared in 
an alley. 

As soon as McCaslin noticed his loss 
he went to the depot, and, taking hi? 
wife with him, he hurried to the East 
Chicago avenue police Btation and re- 
ported the matter. He then went back 
to the depot and boarded a train for

there are some higher branches that

There Is only one way to cure 
and that is by constitutional remedies. 
Deafness Is caused by an .inflamed condi- 
tion of the mucous lining of the Eusta- 
chian Tube, When this tube gets In- 
flamed you have a rumbling sound or Im- 
perfect hearing, and when It is entirely 
closed deafness is the result, and unless 
the Inflammation can be taken out and 
this tube restored to its normal condition, 
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine 
cases out of ten are cau.'<ed by catarrh, 
which is nothing but an Inflamed condi- 
tion of the mucous surfaces. 

We will give one hundred dollars for 
any caae of deafness (caused by catarrh)

church, Buchanan, Ga. writes 
Dec. 10, ISa'): " In childhood I was 
afflicted with excessive nervousness, which, 
almost developed into St. Vitus dance. I 
partially recovered, but at college it gradu- 
ally grew worse. Close study aggrarated 
the trouble; any unusual exertion caused 
trembliug all over. In 1890 I had a severe 
attack of La Grippe which brought on heart 
weakness. I had been almost constantly 
under treatment for 
nervous troubles, and 
I changed climates fre- 
I quently without avail. 
Last February I be-

Commerce's Proposition. 

At th* school board meeting SiUurday 
night it was decided to accept the pio- 
position of the National Bank of Com- 
merce to accept .'lO per cent of the 
board's deposit and wait for the rest 
under certain stipulations. The bank 
assessed its stockholders $3r),000 rather 
than go into insolvency luoceediiigs. 
and arrangements weie made with a 
trust company to advance Sl.'i.OOO s^o j 
that the depositors could Ite paid In ' 
full. The stockholders fell a small j 
amount short of their sum, however, so ; 
other arrangements were necessary. ' 
and it also became needful for the 
bank to arrange with one or two of its 
large creditors to wait for part of their 
money. The school disti-lct is well se- 
cured by bonds. 

Superintendent Denfeld presented his 
monthly report showing a total of 924J 
pupils in all grades, 601 gain over pre- 
vious years. President Hugo reported 
on the uniform charter question and , 
recommended that no further steps be j 
taken at present. The use of the As- 
sembly hall was granted to those who 
are bringing John Fiske here ffii- three 

Director Hanford reported that he [ 
and Director Bowman had been in- < 
specting the kindergartens, and he '< 
moved that a committee of three grade , 
school principles be appointed and ex- | 
amined with a long list of questions 
which he presented. Mr. Denfeld op- 
posed this, as he said that most of the 
questions could be answered only by 
the most expert kindergartners. Di- 
rector Paine moved to strike out all 
hut two of the i>roposed questions and 
the amended motion was passed. Three 
principals will therefore be asked 
whether in their opinions children are 
benefitted by kindergartens and 
whether the discipline and regulations 
are wholesome. 

Superintendent Denfelds expenses 
for attending the National Educaticmal 
association were allowed, thf>ugh pivt-

Saturday afternoon the against

and was released.

Northern Pacific Lands. 

The following letter received by 
Frank W. Walker, says the T^vo Har- 
bors Iron News, will be of interest to 
those of our citizens who have made en- 
tries on N. P. land-grant lands: 

Washin-gton, Mareh 10. 1x97.— Frank 
W. Walker, K.sq.. Two Harbois: Dea." 
Frank— The matter of the Northern 
Pacific land filings has been in a ( ondi- 
I tion of great uncertainly for a con- 
siderable time, and the situation now i? 
that the department holds the land 
open to entry where they are outside 
I the limits, and that suit has been rec- 
ommended to set aside the selections of 
! the railroad company «herc apiilica- 
j lions conflict with the selections. Ap- 
I peals are pending for filings on the s*^— 
, lected lands, and 1 suppose that the 
I proper procedui'e in all cases is to make 
i application, and where it conflicts with 
I a selection by the company, promptly 
take appeal and thus be in shape ti- 
perfect the entry when and as .s<ion as. 
the selection of the compan.v is set as»<b 
by law, if that is done. In some case.-?. 
I am inftnmed by the department, tlu- 
selections have been held for cancella- 
tion, and when the time has elaj)sed i.i 
which a motion for review may be filed, 
the order of cancellation will become 
operative and the applieations of set- 
tlers will be taken up. In either case ii 
seems clear that the settlers will gt t 
the land, although there may be soim 
delay about it. Yours very truly,

this morning, the case against Fred-

Keyes and O. W. Baldwin, who ap- 
peared for Mr. Davi.^, launched into 
the arena a cargo of objections. 

They ol)jected lo Mr. Baldwin's act- 
ing as i)roseculing attorney on the 
giound that he had not propertly qua- 
lified as such officer. After a little ar- 
gument over this Judge Cant over- 
ruled t'ne objection, which was quickly 
followed by another that Mr. Bald- 
win was nut paid for his work by the 
county and that ]-.:• was to !ie jiaio 
by private individuals. They offeivd t>- 
prove thi.s latter charge if the court

completed at 11:30. The attorneys for 
I the defendants were particularly 
; searching in their examination of the 
.jurors, and each one uas asked al)out 
I what he knev.- of the grand jury report 
I in which Mr. Keyes s.'iid the grand jury 
had i)roc<'eded to try the men it had in- 
<licted. .Vobody would admit that they 
had formed an opinion from reading 
the report. The jurors were also close- 
ly questioned as to their po.^ con- 
nection with the late Ta.xpayers' league 

comnan^' ^""^ "'^* ""*" ^"""'^ be/ound who admit- 

*i •. I ted having been a member of that or- 

1 ganization. Some of the jurors were 
; examined in a manner that lead to the 
j belief that the defendant's attorneys 
I had an idea that C. A. Congdon was to 
.some extent responsible for the defend- 
I ant's indictment. Frequent mention 
i was made of a meeting said to have 
been held recently in Mr. Congdon's of- 
! fice relative to this and other cases 
; connected with investigation. These 
i researches were unproductive of re- 

Four peremptory challenges were : 
made by the defendant and two by th^ 
state, and there were no challenges for 
cause. The jury as compieled is as fol-

Chamberlain & Taylor's 

BOORstOre* 323 west Supelor street. Duiuth. 

Washington. March 23.— There 
less than fifty members on the 
\ when the entered upon the aee- 
j ond day <tf the tariff debate at 10 
I o'clock. There were only a few strajf- 
. glers in the Ralleries. As the day ad- 
vanced the meml>ers j)oured in and tiie 
eralleries became crowded. 

Mr. Gibson was the tirst speaker. He 
d» .oted himself to a fjeiieral arsurnent 
in favor of protection. 

Mr. Dockery. who followed, said' it 
was not a matter of surprise to him 
that the di.seussion of the bill thus far 
had been tame and uninterestinfr. "The 
truth is." said hf. 'the people of this 
country want more money and less 
ta.xes. (Demociati*- ui)p!ause.) Tliat is 
at present the issue of the late cam- 
paign. The people wouKl prefer to see 
S11:!.(MU).(M)0 more money put in circula- 
tlnn than to see that amount al>sorbed 
l»y the treasury." Mr. Dockery said it 
diki not lie in the mouths of the Repub- 
lii/ans to critieise the bond issues of 
the last administration. 

Mr. Cleveland was criticized on this 

ha\e. he continued. :in industii.T.1 sys- 
tem in this eonntry Viluch makes it 
the object of attack from all other 
countiies. Our w.apes are much hig:her 
than in any other ct>untry and the unit 
of all values here is the dally wage. A 
general iedu<'ti<m in wages would 
bring about re-adjuslnients of values 
Nthat would be destructive to the prop- 
erty owners, producers and debtor.s. 

We need, therefore, he .said a tariff 
law to protect us against the products 
of I'heap labor elsewhere. The protect- 
ive measure that will protect us against 
the existing agricultural competition 
and the threatening manfacturing 
competition of silver countries must 
be the legislation whieh will restore 
the old relative value of silvei- ,ind 
gold. .Such' a law would be equivalent 
to a tariff of 10 per cent upon the pro- 
ducts of silver counlries. for it would 
increase to that extern the gold cost 
of such products. The competition of 
I'urope is insignificnni as compared 
Willi the existing and threatened com- 
petition of Asia. 1 iielieve, he added, 
that the true polity of the country i.-i 
eoniltined tariff and sihcr legislation— 
the one pnitecting us ;igainst Europe, 
the other against .-Vsi:!. He argueil that 
the recent rise in wheat proved that 
the price of that stapl- depends ui>on 
the price of silver, just as the excep- 
tion iiroves the rule. 

.Mr. Newlands contended, in conclu- 
sion that the area of distress for years 
c(Uifined to the mining belt, had now 
extended to the Middh' and Kastern 
states, which were suftering from the 
loss of the consuming capacity of the 
Western and Southern states. The in- 
crease of protection to the factories 
would not materially add to their 
prosperity, unless the consuming ca- 
pactiy of these regions was restored. 
That could not be done by a tariff leg- 
islation, but could only be accom- 
plished by legislation that would stop 
the appreciation of roM and thus re^ 
lieve our wheat and cottitn industries 
from the destructive competition of 
silver < ountries. The restoration of bi- 
metallism conjointly with reasonable 
tariff legislation wotdd. in his judg- 
ment. piote<t every American inter- 
est and thus bring l>ack a revived 
prosperity to our home industries, our 
mines, our farms. oui- plantations and 
our factories as well as to the commer- 
cial transportation and banking inter- 
ests which were dependent upon them. 
Mr. Lacey. the next speaker, com- 
mented on the abuse of President 
Cleveland by Democr.its and Populists, 
and said that in the liebate not a kind 
word had been said in behalf of the 
only man who carried the Democratic

Bethlehem. Pa., March 2.-..— Discover- 
ies just made place $16jOOO additional to 
the embezzlement totals of Cyrus E. 
Breder, the defaulting cashier of the 
First National bank of this city, who 
disappeared a few weeks ago lea\-ing a 
shortage estimated at the time to 
amount to $13,000. He also stole $1000 
from a building association. Breder's 
bondsmen died and his bond was not 
renewed, so the bank had to make good 
the shortage of $30,000. Breder is said 
to lie in Denver, and it is likely that 
steps will be taken to have him 
brought there on charges of forgery. An 
examination of the books show that he 
began his stealings six months after he 
became cashier of the bank. \ sensa- 
tion has been created here by the re- 
ceipt of a letter from Breder in which 


Roman Catholic Prelate Gives 
His Opinion of It. 

Washington. March 23.— The appeal 
of the president of the W. C. T. U. to 
President McKinley and the governors 
of the states of the Union, telegraphed 
from Chicago, asking for their .inter- 
1 vention to prevent the kinetcscope re« 
{ production of the Fitzsimmons-Corbett 
tight from being exhibited in the I'nited 
States, was commented upon as follows 
yesterday l>y Archbishop Ireland, of St. 
Paul, who is in Washington: 

"Pugilism is barbarism— is animal- 
ism, it is a disgrace to Christian civili- 
ziUion. No Christian nation should 
r>»'rmit it. A few years ago an attempt 
was made to have on a large scale a 
pugilistic exhibition in St. Paul, but the 
< itizens strongly protested and Gover- 
nor Merriam issued a proclamation 
prohibiting it. There was no fight. It 
is a pity that every state and eve/y city 
in the Union had not followed the ex- 
ample of Minnesota and St. Paul. Tht 
exhibition of the kinetoscope reproduc- 
tion of the Car.son fight would minister 
to morbid curiosity. low appetites and 
tend to render prize-fighting popular. 
I hope the good sense and moral 
instincts of the American people will 
not allow this contemplated exhibition 
to take place in any part of our coun-

•Mr. Dockery ridiculed the idea that 
the present tariff law was the monster 
which had destroyed our industries. If 
it had done so. why. he asked, had the 
Hepuldican niembtrs of the ways and 
means committee lifted the metal and 
cotton schedules almost bodily 

this monstrous law? He denied 

there was an era of prosperity for laiK)r 
during the existence of the McKinley^ 
law and instanced the Carnegie strike. 
■ That catastrophe." interrupted Mr. 
Dalzell. "was the result of a contest be- 
tween organized labor and the oppon- 
ents of organized labor. The McK-inley 
law had nothing to do with it." 

"Yes. but the protected employer 
hired Pinkerton detectives to shoot 
down organized labor." returned Mr. 
Dockery. A distinguished Repulilican 
senator, a member .of this house, told 
me at the time that that was the worst 
disaster the Reiuiblican party had ex- 
perienced In twenty years." Mr. Dock- 
ery was especially sarcastic in his re- 
marks on the absurdity of giving al- 
leged protection to agricultural pro- 
ducts. Of the $56;».OOO.IX)0 of produ<ts 
exported by the United States last year 
$.^04.WX).000 wasagricultural products. In 
conclusion he said, that the policy of 
prf)tection had driven our flag from the 
high seas, impoverished the laborin.g 
man and multiplied farm mortgages. 

Mr. Newlands then took the floor as 
the spokesman of the silver party 
which numbers three members in the 

Mr. Newlands di.scussed the tariff 
bill from the standpoint of the silver 
men, who united with Democrats and 
Poi)ulists during the last campaign 
in opposition to the Republicans. This 
alliance, he said, still continued, and 
was likely to amalgamate the allied 
forces into one strong party, with sil- 
v( r as the supreme and dominant is- 
sue, all other fiuestions being subor- 
dinate to it, and the largest tolerance 
iiting exercised as to the difference of 
opinions on other questions which had 
hitherto divided the elements consti- 
tuting the silver force. Much depended 
in the futuie uj).)n the tolerance, the 
wisdom and the conservatism of ac- 
tion of the allied parties, and he pro- 
I posed to address himself to the riues- 
I tion as to what line of party action 
I would best promote the cause of bi- 
metallism, which he said all regarded 
as the only radical cure for existing 

Though, he continued, it is sometimes 
difficult to determine the exact issues 
i settled by a campaign, there can be no 
cjuestion that, as to the tariff, the popu- 
I lar verdict at the last election was in 
I favor of protecii^i. The Democratic 
I party declared silver to be the dom- 
■ inant issue and nearly snatched victory 
from the most desperate conditions. 
I The Republican victory would have 
I been complete had not the Democrat- 
I Ic party presented other unnecessary 
Issues which handicapped Bryan's can- 
I didacy, furnished pretext for mls- 
I representation and abuse and really 
! divided the friends of silver. As it was, 
however, he sakl. the people had de- 
clared in favor of protection and had 
given the Republican party a contract 
for prosperity and that party should 
in his judgment be allowed to carry 
out any reasonable tariff policy with- 
out obstructions and with expedition. 
Mr. • Newlands went on to discuss 
the policy which he thought would 
best protect American indtistry. He 
declared that both industrial and 
monetary legislation were necessary, 
and that of the two, the latter was the 
most necessary. Tariff legislation alone, 
he a.sserted, would not give relief. Pro- 
ducing as we do, a surplus of wheat, 
cotton and other products, the price 
of the exportable surplus is fixed in 
Liverpool, and the Liverpool price fixes 
also the domestic price. In Liverpool 
markets at these products come in com- 
netition with the products of India. 
Russia and Argentina, and other coun^ 
tries, none of which are on a gold 
basis. These countries are willing to 
accept the old silver price for their 

Restore the old gold price of silver, 
$1.29 per ounce, and we immediately 
restore the old gold prices of our farm 
products, and this means, he said, pro- 
tection to the American farms and 
plantations just as the tariff law 
means protection to the factory. We

Northfield Editor Gets a Job 
at Washington. 

Washingtoi^ March 23.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— C. H. Pierce, of North- 
field, has been appointed superintendent 
of the house document room. Pierce 
has been acting editor of the Northiicid 
News since Representative Heatwole 
came to congres.s. Capt. Reed, of Glen- 
toe, has been displaced as superinten- 
dent of the house folding room and ;I

St. Paul, March 2.'?.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— The house found forty bills on 
the calendar awaiting final action this 
morning and immediately after appro- 
val of the journal, other business was 
laid aside and work on the calendar 
begun. Tfie Littletcm bill relating to 
damages for mental sufferings because 
of delayed telegrams came in for an ex- 
' tended, and at times heated discussion. 
Mr. Coe thought sufficient consideration 
had not been given the bill and moved 
that it be sent back to general orders 
for amendment, his motion opening the 
way for an extended debate on the mer- 
its of the bill. An amendment limiting 
such damage to $400, was adopted and 
the bill then passed. S2 to 6. 

The following bills were also passed: 

H. F. TuA, Reeves, relating to liabili- 
ty of railroad C()mi)anies. 

H. F. 12«. Martin, to legalize defec- 
tive township organizations. 

H. P. To. Hicks, i)romotion of forest- 

Mr. Underleak's bill, providing for 
four-year terms for county auditors, re- 
ceived ,')? votes to 43 against it, but 
needed .i8 and was lost. The Goar bill, 
relating to new counties, came in for a 
warm and partisan debate. Mr. Goar 
asked that it be killed, but Feig and 
Jai-obson insisted the Populists wanted 
the l)ill killed for fear the new couni.v 
of .\elson, organized under the measure, 
should be Republican. A call of tlu 
himse was ordered and the roll was 
then called on final pa.s.sage of the bill, 
result in'g in its defeat by a vote of 63 to 

Recess till 2 o'clock. 


Minnesota's Senate Still Dis- 
cussing the New Building. 

St. Paul, March 23.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— Senator Cole, of the insane 
hospital committee of the senate today 
stated that he was In favor of the Hast- 
ing's location for the fourth hospital 
for the insane. This settles the matter 
so far as the committee is concerned 
for the other four committeemen have 
been equally divided between Anoka 
and Hastings, and Senator Cole's an- 
nouncement gives the majority to Has- 
tings andthe committee will so report. 
The minority will report against any 
fourth hcjspital. 

In the senate the university 

tax levy bill was given its final passage 
today without amendment from the 
house bill. It now goes to the governor 
for approval. 

Santa Fe, N. M., March 23.— A tele- 
gram was received this morning from 
Washington saying that President Mc- 
Kinley had respited for ten days the 
four members of the Button gang who 
were to have been hanged to dav for 
the murder of ex-Sheriff Frank Cha-, May 29, 1892. Francisco Gon- 
zales Y. Boirego, Antonio Gonzales 
Fiori-ego, Laurano Alarid and Patricio 
Valencia, the four men who were to 
have been hanged today, were mem- 
l)ers of the executive committee of the 
"Button (iang. ' a league organized to 
combat the ixilitical influence of ex- 
Sheriff Frank Ch.avese, a Democratic 
lea<ler in Santa Fe. A conspiracy was 
formed by this executive committee to 
as.sassinate Chavc-se. On the night of 
May 29, l,s;)2, Chavese, who was a giant 
in strength, was slain from ambush by 
the cowards when going home. The 
next night Juan I'ablo l><>niinguez, who 
<)penly declared that he knew who mur- 
dered Cha\iese. was shot and killed. 

For this crime Francisco Boirego, 
who had been seen flying from the scene 
of the murder, gave himself up. He 
pleaded self-defense and was ac<iuitted. 
For twelve months the gang who con- 
trolled both the police department and 
the sheriff's oflfice was supreme in 
Santa Fe and no attempt was made to 
even get the Chavese murderer. When 
Governor Thornton was appointed in 
1893. he removed District Attorney 
Twitchell and Sheriff Conklin fnmi of- 
fice. The new sheriff began hunting 
for evidence against the murderers of 
Chavese and soon obtained confessions 
from two of the conspirators. Francis- 
co and Antonio Borrego, Lauriano Ala- 
rid, Patricio Valenci and Frank Riveri. 
were arrested. Hippolio Vogil. chief of 
police and coroner, was shot dead while 
making the arrest. 

At the trial, which abounded in sen- 
sational incidents, Rivera, Louis Gon- 
zales and other minor members of the 
gang turned states evidence and the 
two Borregos, Alarid and Valencia 
were convicted of murder in the first 
degree and sentenced to be hanged. The 
first case was appealed on a writ of er- 
ror to the T'nited States supreme court 
which finally decided against the mur- 
derers. Pending the hearing in the su- 
preme court, Alarid and Valencia made 
confessions, removing all doubt of the 
guilt of the gang. 

The murderers were to have been 
hanged February 23, but President 
Cleveland granted a respite for thirty 
days. Numerous plots for the rescue 
of the prisoners have been thwarted by 
the vigilence of the territorial authori- 
ties, and a military guard has been 
stationed at the jail since Sunday, un-

From the Gold Country 
Bringing Two. 

Half a Week's Run on Re-

Out $1638. 

Expects to Turn Out $1000 
Day in a Short 


J. C. Foley, of the Gold Mines com- 
pany, returned today from the Seine 
river, bringing two gold bricks, which 
were on exhibition at the St. Louis 
hotel today. He arrived at camp on 
the 14th, but was forced to come out on 
the 18th to get more supplies l>efore the 
roads break up, which will be in a short 
time. A clean-up was made after a 
three and a half days' run with the mill 
on about three-quarters its capacity, 
and v.ith ore that was adulterated with 
considerable country rock, and the two 
bricks were the result. They were 
taken to the Ameri»an Exchange bank 
and weighed at 91 ounces, which at $1S 
per ounce makes their value $1038 

Mr. Foley told The Herald today that 
when the mill is running properly, and 
IS being fed with clean ore, it w il"l turn 
out a gold brick every day worth $l(mo 
In addition to this, the concentrateft 
will run al)out 2". per cent. The Foley

-elected a Californian for consul 

eral to Hawaii, though the appointment 
v.ill possibly not be announced for 
some time. This is the position Monroe

Wandering Willies Hurt In a 
Railway Wreck. 

Columbus, Ohio, March 23.— A special 
to the Dispatch from Springfield, 
Ohio, says: Those injured in the wreck 
on the Big Four were: 

William Kinsley. St. Louis, both legs 
crushed and back injured. 

Edward Kinsley, St. Louis, legs hurt. 

Frank Fay, St. Louis, head cut. right 
leg and shoulder injured. 

William Siney, Jersey City, shoulder, 
head and back hurt. 

They were taken to a local hospital 
at Springfield. It is feared that there 
are others buried in the debris of the 
train. The train wrecked was through 
freight No. 1. It was full of tramps. 
Conductor Crook and Engineer 
were In charge. It was due at Spring-* 
field at midnight. It broke in two on 
the down grade at the Ohio Southern 
crossing, the parts coming together al- 
most totally destroying twenty-seven 
cars. The track Is being cleared forth-

jections up to the present time, believ- 
ing that the next move of the foreign 
fleet will be to carry out the threat of 
the powers to blockade the principal 
ports and coast of Greece. On this ques- 
tion, however, there is no unanimity of 


Santa Fe, N. M., March 23.— All prep- 
arations for hanging Francisco Borre- 
go. Antonio Borrego, Lauriano Allaid, 
iind Patricio Valencia, were compltce 
this morning. A troop of cavalry and 
a company of infantry of New Mexico 
National Guard, were ordered out to 
guard the prisoners from the peniten- 
tiary to the jail, and to guard the jail 
where the gallows was erected. The 
execution was to have been private, 
only twenty-four persons being permit- 
led to be present. 

As the prisoners started from the 
penitentiary, about a mile from town, 
Ciovernor Thornton received a dispatch 
from Attorney General McKenna, stat- 
ing that the president had granted a 
reprieve for ten days to look more fully 
into the case, press of business having 
prevented the full consideration that 
the gravity of the case required. Gov- 
ernor Thornton immediately dispatched 
a messenger to Sheriff Kinsell. and the 
prisoners were taken to the county jail, 
under escort. The message from 
Washington was as follows: 

'Washington, March 23.— To Hon, W. 
T. Thornton, Governor of New Mexico, 
Santa Fe, N. M.: President reprieves 
the defendants in the Bcunego case ten 
days to have question of jurisdiction 
settled. Requests you to cio likewise. 
This reprieve is made necessary only 
iiy press of business which has prevent- 
ed that consideraticm which the presi- 
dent deems necessary in view of its 
gravity. Answer immediately. 

Attorney General. 

Forward to governor wherever he is." 

The governor at once issued a re- 
prieve suspending the execution for ten 
days, making the day for execution, 
Friday, April 2. This makes the fourth 
time the execution of the prisoners in 
this celebrated case has been delayed, 
and there seems to be some ground for 
the belief that the sentence of the law 
v\ ill never be carried out. 

S^^^- opinion 

Detroit. March 23.— William C. Max- 
berry, a well known leading attorney, 
was nominated for mayor today by the 
Democratic city convention. He will 
make the run against Capt. Stewart, 
the Plngree candidate. 

In the meanwhile the war prepara- 
tions of Greece are continuing niglit 
and day, and there are no indications 
of a back-down in that quarter. Money 
does not appear to be lacking for the 
equipment of the Greeks, and large sup- 
plies of arms and ammunition have 
been forthcoming, from what sources is 
not so clear. This is one feature of the 
situation which should not be over- 
looked. The Greeks are animated by 
the strongest feeling of warlike en- 
thusiasm, while the Turks dread to be 
suffering the greatest privations with- 
out pay or proper equipment, which hsxa 
made them sullen and resentful, but far 
from desirous of enterin-g upon an ag- 
gressive campaign. If war is declared, 
the Greek army from Ladissa will prob- 
ably try to enter Macedonia with the 
Crown Prince Constantine, anu a second 
Greek army will attempt to enter 
Epirus from the vicinity of Arta. 

It is still possible tliat war may be 
averted by timely concessions to Greece, 
such as the withdrawal of all Turkish 
forces from Crete and the selection of 
Prince George of Greece as governor of 
Crete, with the understanding that 
when quiet is restored it shall be de- 
cided by a plebiscite whether or not the 
island is to be annexed to Greece. 

Washington, March 23. — The presi- 
dent has nominated Bernard Bettman, 
of Ohio, to be collector of internal 
revenue for First district of Ohio, and 
C. H. Brush, of Connecticut, to be 
recorder of the general land office.

He Cannot Win the Senator- 
ship From Kentucky. 

Louisville, Ky., March 23.— A special 
to the Evening Post from Frankfort 
says: Today was the first one on which 
separate ballots could be taken for a 
United States senator to succeed ex. 
Senator Blackburn, under the ruling of 
Lieutenant Governor Worthington. All 
morning rumors were rife of the bolting 
of six Republican members, who would 
not support Congressman Hunter, the 
nominee, and form a coml)ination be- 
tween a few Republicans and the Demo- 
crats to elect Governor Bradley to the 
senate, thus causing a vacancy in tlie 
governor's ottice and making an open- 
ing for the Democrats. 

At 12 o'clock the two houses voted 
with the following result: In the sen- 
ate the vote stood: Blackburn (free 
silver Democrat). 14; Hunter, 13; Boyle, 
(Republican), 3; Davie (gold Democrat), 
(!; total, 36. In the house the vote was 
as follows: Blackburn, 34; Hunter, 53; 
Boyle, 3; Davie, 5; McCreary, 1; Buck- 
ner, 1; Sloane, 1. Necessary to choice, 
70. The result shows that Hunter can- 
not win in joint session tomorrow. 

Bloomsburg, Pa., March 23.— Mrs. 
Sarah J. Brown, who died here recent- 
ly, gave all of her fortune of $60,000 to 
Methodist charities, the Church Ex- 
tension society being the largest benefi- 

product. It i.-. said to be marvelous, 
and so plea.sed are the ownei-s that 
they have decided to put in a 40-stamp 
mill at once. They have a new saw- 
mill, and are buying a second one. 

The toun of Foley will be platted at 
once and a new modern 50-^oom hotel 
will be erected. Duiuth parties are to 
be interested in it. 

Mr. Foley was accompanied by 
McAuliffe. who went up a short t^me 
ago and who returns even more en- 
thusiastic- thuu ever, if possible. This 
morning twenty-four teams left Tower 
for the gold range loaded with ma- 
chinery, powder, provisions, etc. The 
Foley party met John McDoygall. 
Thomas A. Merritt and .V. C. Jamison, 
all bound for the gold country. 

The new transportation line, hereto- 
fore mentioned in The Herald, expect.'-, 
to put passengers through from Duiuth 
to Seine River for $7 to $8, and freigbi 
not to exceed $25 per ton, less than half 
what the other route costs. The road.s 
are now bad, and they are not likely t.. 
improve before the snow goes off. 


Minnesota and Blue Earth 
Rivers on the Rampage. 

St. Paul, March 23.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— A Mankato, Minn., special 
to the Dispatch says Mankato is now 
suffering from fioods. The Minnesota 
river is gorged for miles and the Blue 
Earth river, which empties into the 
Minnesota in the south part of town, 
overflowed its banks at about 2 
y'clock this morning and I)y daylight 
fully 100 families residing on Poplar 
and Minnesota streets were hemmed 
in by the water, which came in tor- 
rents down the former street. Many 
houses were surrounded with water, 
which reached to the windows of the 
first story. 

North Mankato, which is in Nicollet 
county, is depopulated. The inhabi- 
tants numbering 700 people are moving 
over the river into this city. It is im- 
po.ssible to find a vacant room in the 
city. This is considered only a slight 
beginning of what is expected to follow, 
as fully half a dozen small rivers above 
have only begun to break up. Great 
hardship will necessarily follow and the 
damage to property cannot yet be esti- 
mated. The Minnesota river, which 
borders the city for some three miles, 
is slowly rising and filling, piling up 
pyramids of ice which refuse to be 
moved with dynamite which has been 
used at places. The outlook is not 
pleasant for Mankato.

The murderer who. at dead of night, 
creeps, stealthily out to bury the dead and 
mati>rled body of his victim inspires men 
with horror and dread There is a murderer 
•broad who yearly slays one-sixth of all the 
human race who ro down to untimely deaths. 
This dread monster is called consumption. 
The approach of consumption is slow and 
insidious. First there is a sligfht disorder 
of the digrestion. The appetite is poor and 
the nourishing: properties of the food are not 
properly assimilated. The blood becomes COrbcth'^ 
thin and impure. The body beifins to starve. ^*" ■'*'*' *■ 
Old tissues of the body are not properly re- 
placed by new. The lung tissues are not 
properly nourished and are inert and half 
dead. % In this condition they offer a good 
soil for the germs of consumption which 
invade and attack them. 

This operation is promptly reversed by 
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, ft

tifth annual grand AmL-rica handicap 
at live pigeons began today and will 
last two days, at the new and spacious

pigeon shooting tournament ever held 
in this country. The opening event was 
the Lakewood Park introductory, 
which will be decided today, commen- 
cing at 10 a. m. It will he a seven bird 
event. The second event is the nitro- 
powder handicap. The will

Some Sparring Exhibitions and 
a Specialty Show. 

fian Francisco. March 23.— Brady has 
outlined his plans for Corbett's future 
work. Next Saturday night the ex- 
champion will appear at the Mc-Don- 
: ough theater in Oakland in a sparring 
: exhibition, the entertainment being 
rounded oft by members of the Olympic 
and Reliance clubs. This show wih 
probably he followed by another in thi.s 
city, when Jim will show as a special- 
ist In the middle of an Olympic club 
minstrel show. 

Brady says that the present season is 
too far advanced to start a dramatic 
show on the road, but that he will take 
Corbett the continent next week, 
giving sparring contests in all tht 
cities. Next fall he will nut on the 
"Naval Cadet" once more, and also a 
three-act comedy, probably "Mr. 
Wilkinson's Widows," or some similar 
play. Brady is as determined as ever 
not to -go away from this city vvithout 
pledging Fitzslmmons to another battle, i

Ghastly Find of a Washington 
Farmer Boy. 

Tacoma. Wash., March 23.— A farm-

composed body of a man in a clump of 
bushes alwiii a mile from town. The 
coroner foun.i that the dead man had 
taken pains to prevent his identity be- 
coming known by cutting off the names 
from the clothing and the brands of the 
I pencils and photographs and articles, 
but in one of his pockets was a check to 
I a valise which had been sent from 
SeattK- to this city last April. 

In the valise were found silk under, 
wear and a number of photographs, a 
iTiark on one of which indicated that 
it had been taken in St. Louis. The let- 
ters O. T. F. were found upon one piece 
of underwear. Near the body were 
found an .mpty whisky bottle and a 
two ounce bfittle with the cork out. 
There were no evidences of foul play, 
and it is considered probable that the 
man committed suicide. A brand on

Liable to Be a Quarrel Over 
the Money. 

San Francisco, March 22.— Many con- 
tradictory stories are current about the 
respective parties concerned in the pic- 
ture taking scheme connected with the 
^^%'^,\,,'^^^^^P''onshlD flght. According 
to W^illlain K. Wheelock. assistant con- 
fidential adviser to the Stuart corpora- 
tion, Dan Stuart alone, received anv 
remuneration for the klnetoscope privi- 
leges. He says that when Stuart had 
arranged the fight various offei-s were 
made by the klnetoscope concerns The 
Ldison company and the Vitascope 

511,000 and obtained the privilege 

Wheelock also states that the flgli/ers 
did not and will not receive any portion 
of this money. He asserts that the 
agreement between Stuart and Revlor 
would have been cancelled had "the 
weather been such as to make photo- 
graphing impossible. The reason 
alleged is that the expense of getting 
and setting up the klnetoscope ma- 
chinery amounted to $40,000. He says 
Stuart agreed not to demand the $11 "- 
000 if the day was too dark and dis- 
mal for the proper operation of the ap- 

Martin JuUlan says that each fighter 
secured rights for himself. Just how 
much and what they are to receive he 
would not divulge, claiming that it was 
private matter and did not concern the 
public. He denies that the winner was 
to receive an extra stipend. Fitz had 
nothing to say for himself. Corbett 
who has followed the business details of 
the fight with a sharp eye, sings a song 
different from the others. He says that 
each fighter receives a percentage and 
the winner an extra $10,000. Corbett 
has not yet called on Fitz, but still in- 
tends to do so. The vi.sit will not be so 
much a social as a business one, for i 
Jim is intent upon obtaining another I 

Wheelock promises another big meet in- 
side of a year. If another match can 
it? arranged between Corbett and Fitz- 
slmmons. Stuart will make a Ind for it. 
For a second attraction he will try to 
arrange a fight between Shaikey and 
Maher. Wheelock is confident that in a 
few months hfUf a dozen states would 
pass laws legalizing prize fights.

' The duties of the city engineer are 
described in title 13. The city engineer 
is to be appointed by the mayor in- 
stead of elected by the board of pub- 
lic works. His term of office la two 
years and his salary is to be between 
$2500 and $40o0. Section 191 says: "The

The most radical change is in title 
14 which provides for a commissioner 
of public works to take the place of 
the T)resent board of f(nir members. 
The commissioner is to be appointed 
by ti e mayor the first Tuesday of 
June in every odd iwmbered year and 
his term is for twf^-ears. His salary 
Is to be fixed by the council and it 
must be not less than $1,500 nor more 
than $2.">00 a year. He is authorized to 
appoint a clerk and such other em- 
ployes as he deems necessary. They 
hold office at his pleasure and their 
salary is fixed by the council. His 
duties are essentially the same as now- 
performed by the board of public

the same restrictions. 

Title l.=> deals with Improvements and

provements and proceeds as n©w. 
When an assesement is set aside by the 
court, the commissioner shall proceed 
de novo, without the council, to make

provision is made for condemnation

Report That New Commis- 
sioner Districts Are to Be 
Established Soon. 

Thomas Haley May Succeed 

IWr. Stevens, Present 


West Duluth People Seem 

to Be in Favor of the 


It is currently reported in West Du- 
luth political circles that the board of 
public works intends to soon redistrict 
the city for street commissioner pur- 
poses and that the West End district 
will be made to include much less terri- 
tory than it now contains. At present 
it extends from Fortieth avenue west 
to the western limits of the city, which, 
it is claimed, is moiv than one man can 
l<<ok after in an efficient manner. It 
is said that the redistriction scheme 
also contemplates the election of 
Thomas Haley as street commis.sioner 
for the West Knd district, and th- 
dropping of the prt-.sent incumbent. 
Conmiissioner Stevens. Mr. Haley wa.s 
street commissioner in West Duluth 
before the consolidation with Duluth. 
and has since be;-n mentioned in con- 
nection with the pi>sition. His candi- 
dacy will reopen the local political ttght 
that was brought to a temporary con- 
clusion by the appointment and con- 
firmation of W. H. Smith as member 
of the board of public work.s. The 
friends of Commissioner Stevens, who 
hope to retain him in his present posi- 
tion, will i»ppose any change in the 
commis.«ioner districts, and in any event 
will resist any attempt that mav be 
made to give the place to Haley. 


Arlington, Georgia. Has a 
Frightfully Fatal Cyclone. 

Louisville. March 23.— A special to the

Four others are reported killed at 
Blakely, (Ja. 

The Arlington academy, a fine struc- 
ture, lay directly in the path of the 
storm. It was knocked into a great 
heap and the work of death was don© 
even l)efore the danger was realized. 

The structure was smashed into kind- 
ling wood, and the broken timbers and 
dead bodies mixed together in a sicken- 
ing confusion. 

The bodies of eight children have been 
taken from the ruins of the academy, 
and others will die. Thirty-five children 
and two teachers went down in tlie 
wreck of the building and the work of 
removing the dead and injured was 

Among the wounded are: Ernest 
Weltons. leg broken; Dudley KiUbrew. 
both legs broken; Alton Carter, leg 
broken: Ethel Carter, internal injuries,

shoulder dislocated; Simon Sanders, leg 
broken, hurt internally, will die; Geor,?.' 
Riley, arm broken, hurt internally; 
Clara Thigh, arms broken, hurt inter- 
nally, will die. 

The scenes around the building were 
most heartrending, as mothers clasped 
the f<»rms of their loved children in their 
arms, not heeding their bloody and 
mangled condition The rain began to 
pour down in torrents as soon as the 
wind passed off. and the fiOO people \ji re 
ilrenched to the skin while clearing 
away the wreck.

World's Record Broken at a 
San Francisco [vent. 

The kindergarten question has 
arous.^d considerable interest in West 
Duluth. and the general opinion ex- 
pressed is that it would be bad policy 
on the part of the school board to 
ab.>Iish any of the kindergarten schools 
for the purpose of inaugurating new 
departures along other lines. The peti- 
tion to the school board protesting 
against the proposed reduction in th*- 
kindergartens, which was published in 
The F:vening Herald yesterday, will be 
circulat;d for signatures among par- 
ents in the West End this week, and it 
is believed that it will be quite gen- 
erally signed. 

The Knights of Pythias and oth^T 
se« ret society men met in Odd Fellows 
hall last night and conferred the Ori- 
ental degree on a number of unenlight- 
ened travelers from Duluth. West Su. 
perior and West Duluth. The initiatorv 
exercises were of a most original and 
unique chaarcter, some radical varia- 
tions being made fn>m the regular rit- 
ual. The candidates were revived from 
the fatigue which they experienced l.v 
a plentiful supply of refreshments, that 
were served immediately after the cere- 
monies. There was a very large atten- 
dance to witness the extremely Ori- 
ental work. 

San Francisco, March 23. — The sec- 
ond night of the indoor tournament 
furnished some of the finest sport ev_>r 
seen In this city. The racing men are 
becoming more used to the track and 
the sport was fast and furious. The 
finish in the two-mile professional was 
one of the most exciting events im- 
aginable. Two pacemakers on single 
wheels were put in to make the place 
for Longhead, the Canadian champion; 
Eaton, the "Indoor King," McFarland. 
of San Jose, and Jones, of San Fran- 
cisco, who qualified for the final. The 
finish was terrific. Eaton commenced 
the sprint with Longhead at his rear 
wheel, Jones sec<md and McFarland 
in the rear. Longhead challenged Eaton 
in the last lap and a pretty race en- 
sued. On the last turn Jones attempt- 
ed to cut in on the inside and sus- 
tained a fall, almost throwing McFar- 
land. Longhead beat the indoor king 
out by half a wheel's length. McFar- 
land finished third. Time. 4:24, which 

; Is the world's Indoor record. 

' The other races were interesting, but 

, nothing of a sensational character.

•The financial que.stlon in this coun- 
try," he said last night, in the course 
of a short interview, "la by no means 
settled. The defeat of Bryan has not 
ciushed and shattered the question of 
free silver. McKlnley's election did not 
mean that the people of the United 
States were opposed to free silver. The 
people of this country want gold and 
silver together as standard money. 
They will reach that end in some way 
or another before many years. The de-

basis of our American financial sys- 

Governor Boies believes that trusts

McKinley administration is now pre-

will say their high tariff was the causae 
of the better times, but such action will

Xew York, March 23. — Uneasiness re- 
garding the effect of the supreme court 
decision in the trans-Missouri Trafli? 
association case resulted in marked 
heaviness in the grangers and in other 
shares at the opening of the stock ex- 
change. The grangers yielded on an 
average % per cent with some wider 
recessions in other properties. The mar- 
ket was not affected by the higher 
range in London and sagged steadily on 
liberal offerfngs. The Industrials were 
neglected, but displayed steadiness, 
particularly Chicago Gas. 

The market steadied for a biief Inter- 
val and general advances occurred in 
which Xorthwestern. Rock Island and 
'Chicago Ga<s assumed prominence. 
The Vanderbilt group lacked the de- 
cided buoyancy which characterized 
the shares of late, and the dealings 
were much contracted. The bear fac- 
tion, .however, soon made a fresh on- 
slaught on the market and paid spe- 
cial attention to Sugar and Xew Jer- 
sey Central. 

Liquidation on a large scale was evi- 
dent in Xew Jersey Central and several 
large stop orders were encountered, 
which, after 11 o'clock, depressed the 
price to 85% as against 89c, yesterday's 
final sale. Sugar was also haminered 
effectually and lost 1%. The grangers 
and other leading stocks shared in the 
reactionary' movement, with Manhat- 
tan and New York Central losing a 
point each. Business was largely cen- 
tered in the active shares, and the bears 
were emboldened by the absence of 
commission buying, and the steady 
offerings of the leading international 
shares and bonds for foreign account. 
The bonds market displayed little feat- 
ure, but prices were fairly well sus- 
tained for the well known Issues. Some 
of the receivership properties, how- 
ever, developed heaviness and weakness 
was apparent also in the Xew Jersey 
Central lines. Sales to noon were 96.100

Chicago, March 2:;.— Chicago suburbs 
are having a flood experience. For 
the second time in thirty years the 
Desplaines river has tossed aside the 
restraints of banks and of levee and 
the flood has stretched its rule over ail 
the lowlands along Its course. One- 
third of the residence part of River- 
side is under wat.-r. and since Sunday 
boats have been the only means of 
conveyance possible to Inhabitants of 
thf» flooded locality. 

The Illinois and Michigan canal has 
been unable to hold in check the com- 
bination of its own and the headed 
\olume of surfac*' water and has over- 
flowed Its banks and encroached upt)n 
the neighboring niarshes.

Chicago. March 23.— Our market had no 
help today from anything but doniest»<- 
conditions, both English and contlnentiil 
cables showed marked declines and the 
world's visible decrease was just about 
as tigured out. The opening was weak 
and lower but a turn for the better came 
almost instantly wh.n St. Louis quota- 
tions were received. That market ad- 
vanced quickly on July wheat and while 
May wheat here hesitated July followed 
St. Louis. The strength was almost en- 
tirely from the crop reports which came 
today from the South and West in great- 
er number and showing outlook 
than at any time before. If half of them 
are true the American farmer had better 
abandon his own fields and go to buying 
futures. A large line of long wheat which 
was sold yesterday was replaced todav 
at the close.

tax on the output of mines is vicious 
: in principle. This system of taxation 
was abandoned because it was found 
to be unconstitutional. The people of 
St. Louis county, who were outside the 
influence of the great inm companies, 
opposed the system and demanded 
that iron properties should be assessed 
and taxed in the same manner as other 
property, and they rejoiced when the 
attorney general reported that the ton- 
nage tax was unconstitutional, and 
when the mines were assessed in the 
regular way. It was with regret that 
they saw the constitutional amendment 
adopted, giving the legislature power 
to re-establish the tonnage tax. the 
submission oi the amendm.^nt being I 
due to the influence of the iron corpora- | 
tions with the last legislature.

The common council last night de- 
cided to cut down the salaries of a num- 
l>er of the city employes. It is very 
desirable that economy should be prac- 
ticed in the administration of the city's 
affairs, and that unnecessary expendi- 
tures should be carefullj' avoided. At 
the sanw time it is not a wise plan to 
go to the other extreme, and The Herald 
is strongly of the opinion that in the 
majority of the cases in which salaries 
Avere reduced last night the council 
acted without sufficient consideration 
of all the circumstances. The people 
ilemand that no excessive salaries be 
paid: at the same time, they are not 
demanding that the city employes be 
paid less amounts than the duties of 

time, however 

made Wc- expect to almost double the 

as.sessment. Under the tonnage system 

there can be no Increase. I know very 

well that the argument is advanced by 

the friends of the tonnage system that 

the mine owners will control the as- 

.sessors and local county boards. This 

I do not believe. People in St. Louis 

county as a whole are groaning under 

the burden of taxation, and they want 

the min^s and mining property to l)ear ' f*redit upon the European

reason to doubt but what a fair 

some of the ofRces which can safely be 
dispensed with, instead of cutting down 
the stipends of officials who are earn- 
ing every cent that they receive now. 

Take the city treasurer for instance. 
His salary has been $2200. certainly not 
an excessive sum. when the responsi- I 
bility of the office is talu-n into con- j 
sideration. He is also required to fur- I 
nish a bond for $2.50.000. The treasurer 
in Minneapolis receives $50ft0 and he is I 
not required to work as hard as Treas- i 
urer Voss does, because he has much 
more a.ssistance. To cut down Treas- I 
urer A'oss' salary to $2000 would be an j 
injustice. The city comptroller is cer- • 
tainly worth $2000. if at all competent • 
to fill the office, and his assistants are 
not overly paid now. At one time the 
city attorney's salary was $3500. It is 
now $2400. The council proposes to cut 
it to $2000. If the right man has been 
chosen to fill the responsible position of 
legal adviser to the city, a salary of 
$2400 is certainly not too much. Eiual- 
ly unjustifiable is the proposal to cut 
the city engineer's salary from $2400 to 
$2200. Only a few years ago the city 
paid its engineer $4200. and there was 
not as much important work to be done 
by the engineer's office as there is now. 
when the city is beginning the con- 
struction of a waterwor-ks system to 
cost $3,000,000. It is of vital importance 
to the city that good engineering tal- 
ent be devoted to the carrying out of 
the waterworks plans, and if the pres- 
ent city engineer is not worth $2400 a 
year he is not competent to be in 
charge of the work. These are a few 
instances of "the penny wise, pound 
foolish" policy which guided the coun- 
cil in the reductions made last night. 

It is stated that at the next meeting 
reductions will be made in the salaries 
paid in the fire and police depart- 
ments. The Herald believes that this 
would also be a mistake. By reason of 
the increased efficiency of the fire de- 

"I am firmly convinced that the ton- 
nage system is both impracticable and 
costly and there is room for gros.s 
frauds. What surprises me is that at 
the opening of the session the mine- 
owners were united in favor of a ton- 
nage system, and went before the com- 
mittees and argued in its favor. But 
after the repeal of the 1-cent a ton tax 
law they changed front. The mine 
owners today are in favor of a tonnage 
tax if they can get it low enough. We 
took the initiative in this matter. The 
I cent per ton tax would have been on 
the statute books today had it not been 
for this office-. The tonnage system 
has Ijeen tested in Michigan, Wisconsin. 
Pennsylvania, Alabama and other 
states and discarded." 
It is hoped that .Auditor Dunn's state- 

Tho African .Methodists, of the state 
of Illinois, will build a memorial 
church at Spiingfleld in honor of the 
memory 01 Abraham Lincoln. It will 
be named the Lincoln Memorial church 
and cost $80,000. There will be three 
memorial windows. The center one 
will be dedicated to Lincoln and the 
two smaller to Frederick Douglas and 
John Brown. 

I John Goodnow. who has returned to 
I .Minneapolis from Washington, where 
j he had several interviews with the 
president, says he did not seek any 
federal office, but the other people in 
.Minneapolis smile when he protests. It 
is so amusing to think of a Minneapo- 
ds nfan neglecting to ask for an office, 
when he had the opportunity. 

The visit of Senator Nelson and Con- 
gressman Morris to the president yes- 
terday will probably result in the early

Chicago Record: The sugar .schedule 
of the new tariff bill will, perhaps, be 
subject to less criticism than almost anv 
other part of the bill. The schedule w-k's 
to i-qualize .American producers with for- 
eign in-oducers of sugar, though i; is 
carefully pr.ivided that the new riles 
siiall not affect the existing Hawaiian 
recipmcal treaty. Hawaii, in all p' -.ib- 
ability will have n. new deal under the 
present administration in tlie matter of 
annexation and the framers of the bill 
therefore leave it out of considertttion 
for the present. 

The exttnit to which the sugar industry 
has grown in European countries recenJlv 
may be judged from the statement th."i"t 
during ISOtj Germany, Russi.i. France. 
.Austria. Holland and Belgium are said co 
have produced over 5.000.000 tons of sugar, 
or to the value of more than $300.i)00.00& 
The T'nited States during 1896 consumec 
2.300,000 tons of sugar, or almost half the 
entire crop of the countries named, onlv 
4r>.(jOO tons of which, however, were beet 
sugar. A great impetus is expected to be 
given the beet sugar industry in this 
country by the new tariff bill. Success- 
ful beet root sugar factories' have been 
established in California. Nebrask.i 
Utah, New Mexico, Wisconsin and other 
states, and the new secretary of agricul- 
ture will probably make special efforts 
to ascertain what other states can prof- 
itably engage in this industry. The old 
factories will be enlarged, new ones start- 
ed, and it is believed that in a few .years 
the ITnited States will be able to produce 
not only all the sugar used in this cx)un- 
try. but will also entfr the markets of 
the world as a competitor In this now line 
of industry. 

Lack of Transportation Hurts 
the Gold Country. 

Rod A. Demme. who has provided the 
capital that has enabled the Foley Min- 
ing company to make the developments 
which have revealed the great body of 
ore now in sight on tlie Foley property, 
and who left yesterday for the gold 
fields will return to Duluth in a few 
days. Mr. Demme deplores greatly Ihe 
fact that the means of communication 
between the new country and the out- 
side world are so difficult and says that 
until the obstacles in the way of trans- 
porting machinery and supplies are 
lessened that development will be slow 
and difficult notwithstanding the bril- 
liant showing that has been made by 
a few pioneer companies that have 
opened a number of rich gold bearing 
veins. He says that by the time heavy 
machinery has been taken to Tower by 
rail, then transferred to a boat, then to 
a journey of nearly thirty miles over 
a rough road, again to a boat, and 
thence to still another portage, and to 
another boat, before it reaches Mine 
Center from where it must be hauled 
by wagons to the mines, it proves very 
expensnve and makes the risk to pros- 
pectors very hazardous. He believes 
that this year enough development w-ill 
have been done about Rainy Lake and 
Seine river to warrant one or the other 
of the range railroads in extending 
their lines to Rainy Lake, thus provid- 
ing close connection with Duluth. He 
says that Duluth is the natural out- 
fitting point for the whole country and 
that a large volume of business which 
now goes to Rat Portage and Winnipeg 
would be done in Duluth if the busi- 
ness men and railroad companies in- 
terested would make an effort to obtain

The council last evening 
resolution requesting the 
representation from Duluth 
their efforts toward preventing 
passage of the uniform charter 

passed a 


to direct 



until an opportunity shall have been 
had for a discussion of its provisions by 
the p'Ople; directed the drafting of a 
l>iU for the extension of special improve- 
ment assessments on payment of in- 
terest, penalty and costs and the issu- 
ance of improvement certificates to re- 
imbuse the treasury therefor, and 
wound up the session l»y cutting sal- 
aries right and left. 

The attention of the council was 
called to the expediency of extending 
the improvenient assessments bv a 
letter from X. J. Upham & Co. The" is- 
suance of certificates for the extended 
assessments would, it was stated, en- 
able the city to take care of the major 
i'art of its floating indebtedness, arisin,: 
from the assumption of $600.i)t)0 of un- 
paid a.ssessments. Upham & Co. stated 
that they had caused a bill to be pre« 
pared to compass the object indicated. 
Coupled with their communication was 
an offer to take the improvement cer- 
tificates issued during the ensuing year 
at 6 per cent. 

Ablermen Richardson and Sang 
thiiught the certificates should be sold 
by advertisement as. they thought, 
better terms could then be secured, [f 
th?re was anything in the plan the city 
should get all it could out of it. 

Alderman Shannon thought the eitv 
■would do well to accept Upham's offer, 
and Treasurer Voss, who was called 
on. said that he considered the Up- 
hams offer fair, inasmuch as short 
time improvement bonds are not con- 
sidered as desirable as long time iionds, 
being secured by lien on the property 
merely, and there being no provision 
for refunding. 

A resolution accepting Upham"s offer 
was lost by a vote of 8 to 8, and a reso- 
lution, introduced by Alderman Jeffer- 
son, was carried, directing the city at- ' 
torney and city clerk to frame a biU 
for the extension of assessments and 
Issuance of certificates therefor, and to 
forward the draft to Kepresentatives 
l.,aybourn and Schmidt. 


The resolution as to the uniform 
charter bill was introduced by Alder- 
man Harker. It sets forth that the coun- ! 
oil unqualifiedly protests against the 
passage of the uniform charter bill at 
this time, and calls on the s.-nator and > 
representatives of this district to op- | 
jMjse its passage until it can be investi- ; 
gated. It is further set forth that the 
«-ouncil expressly disavows any respon- ; 
sibility for further expenses incurred 
V»y the charter committee. It was 
carried by a vote of 13 yeas to ?, nays. 
Aldermen Crass weller, Dahl and Jeffer- 
son voting in the negative. 

Alderman Sang mad ■ a jnove to open 
the ball on the subject of telephone 
rates. He requested the clerk to read 
that portion of the mayor's last mes- 
s^agein which the obligations of the tele- 
phone company to furnish telephones 
as cheaply as in other cities is asserted, 
and the statement made that in other 
<ities the rates are from $10 to $1.") for 
residence and $25 for business houses. 
After the extract had been read. Mr. 
Sang made a motion, referring the mat- 
ter to the ordinance and judiciary com- 
mittee, which was carried. 

The question of salaries consumed a ' 
majority of the time of the session. Th':' 
reductions aggregate a little under l": 
per cent of the salaries previously paivl, ■■ 
exclusive of the reduction in the health j 
officer's pay, whit h was cut nearly in I 
two. The resolution fixing salaries was 1 
^livided on demand of Alderman Stevens 
and the items taken up separately. The 
debate was lengthy and amendments 
even unto the third and fourth were ' 
tacked on to the original motions in 
jnany instances. 


The strongest fight was made over the i 
fit rk's salary. and amendments 
fixing the rate at from $950 to 
$1100 were offered and defeated befoiv 
the question was settled. During a 
speech in behalf of his first assistant, 
the city clerk made a remark which the 
comptroller construed as a reflection on ' 
his first assistant, and the sparks fitw . 
for a minute, the matter being adjusted 
finally by mutual explanations. 

Resolutions, introduced by Alderman 
Dahl. were passed requesting the chiefs 
of the police and fire departments and t 
the fire commissioners to meet the sal- I 
ary committee to confer in reference to ! 
the pay of memtiers of those depait- 
ments for the ensuireg year, and invit- i 
ing the board of fire commissioners to i 
meet the fire denartment committee 
March 25 at 2 o'clock p. m. to consult in ' 
regard to flre tug service and depart- i 
ment expenses. j 

A resolution appropriating the sum of ; 
$8.10 to the Home society. Women's hos- j 
pital. Humane society and the IJethcl ! 
was introduced and. on motion of Al- 
derman Jffierson. referred to the city 
attorney for advice as to power to 
make the approi)rlation. The resolution 
provides for monthly payments tr» the 
institutions as follows: Home society, 
$20.8.*',: Bethel, $20.S.3; Women's hospital, 
-SIS: Humane society, $12..'>0. 

The city attorney was. by a resolu- 
Tion introduced by Alderman Dureu. 
directed to report as to the status of 
the Garfield avenue viaduct mandamus 
proceeding, and, by a resolution intnt- 
duced by Alderman Sang, to furnish 
data as to the suits against the follow- 
ing banks and their bondsmen: Bell & 

A reliable grocer will never offer a

Postum and not a spurious imitation of- 
feretl as "just as good."

The city engineer was. by resolution, 
instructed to inquire into the cause of 
the delay of the Carrol Porter company 
in furnishing pipe and to investigate 
the matters involved between X. F 
Hugo and the Ironton Structural Steel 
company over the delivery of the bal- 
ance of the plate for the 42-inch fonc charter 


The board of public works was in- 
structed to obtain from the re<"elver 
for the Duluth Transfer railway com- 
pany a waiver of objection to the erec- 
tion of an elevated sidewalk over itr- 
tracks at Tenth avenue west, and an 
agreement to pay the roail's share of 
the expense. 

A conmiunication from the city at- 
torney was received, advising the 
council that it has the power to re- 1 
! quire the city clerk and health offlcoi 
to pay over fees other than those given 
by general law. | 

A communication from Representa- 
tive Laybourn was received, stating 
that the jiormal school appropriation j 
is now in the hands of the house sub- 1 
committee on appropriation and sug- 
gesting the advisability of an appear- 
ance before the committee of some ac- 
credited representative of the city to 
urge the allowance of the item. On 
motion. City Clerk Richardson was'ap- 
poined a committee of one to appear' 
before the sub-committee on the mat-' 
' ter. 

The award of the commis.sioners in 
condemnation of a right-of-way for ac- 
cess to the site of the proposed reser- 
voir at Thirty-fourth avenue east was' 
confirmed. | 

, A communication from C. M. Horton 
I was received pointing out the inad- 
visability of carrying the force main 
across Lester river on a wooden trestle. 
The communication stated that to do 
so is to run the risk of damage from 
forest fires and. to depend on the mercy 
of God. who. the council was reminded, 
helps only those who help themsoives. 
and the folly of adhering to exploded 
theories was dwelt upon. The com- 
munication was placed on file, I

charter, unless 

Alderman Richardson again sounded 
a warning note against the measure. 
Alderman Jefferson thought it would 
atTord a means to get out of debt. Al- 
derman Richardsim took issue on this, 
saying it would place Duluth where it 
would have to make an assignment, 
and Alderman Sang saw in its adoption 
the certainty that the city would be 
forced into bankruptcy. 

Attorney H. F. Greene briefly re- 
viewed salient points of the charter." 
PrDVision is made, he said, for the i.^sue 
of bonds to run not longer than thirty 
years to take up the floating indebteii"- 
ness. Such a provision, he said. Is the 
best the members ofi the connnittee 
could get. So far as he could see. sui h 
bonds should be floated as easily a.^ 
orders. There was no i>rovision for sub- 
nUssion of the charter to a vote of the 
people, for the rea.son. he said, that a 
question had been raised as t<» the con 
stitutlonality of such a provision. 

N. J. l'i>ham said that it would oe 
very <lifflcult to sell such bonds with th<- 
city's indebtedness at Its present figure. 
He would not undertake it for less than 
6 per cent. 

Aldermen Craasweller and Dahl took 
the view that there should be no mor- 
ditflculty in paying off the floating debt 
than in extending orders. The orders 
must be paid somehow, and short-time 
bonds could be raised as well 

Treasurer Voss said that the issue of 
bonds is hedged about by legislative 
provisions that would render it more 
difficult to dispose of bonds than of 
orders, with the city's present indebted- 

Alderman Stevens suspected that 
there was Si>niethlng more behind th- 
charter than consideration for the city's 
interest solely. Under the proposed 
the city would be powerless to 
raise money to parallel the old water 
plant. There is a woodchuck in tin 
woodpile, he said, and he intimated thai 
It is the gas and water ct)mpanv's wood- 

Comptroller lyivett said unless some 
plain way of taking care of city orders 
Is jKiinted out. th«» new charter shouM 
not be adopted.

Shot and Fatally Wounded at 
Missoula. Mont. 

Prank Payette, formerly of Superior, 
was shot and mortally wounded at 
Missoula, Mont., on the morning oi 
March 19. He died at 6 a. m, on the 
following day, at the hospital, to which 
he had been removed. Payette has a 
brother residing in Superior, A Mis- 
soula paper says: 

"Theo Bfckman shot and perhaps 
mortally wounded Frank Pavette. near 
the Northern Pacific depot. The shoot- 
ing was the result of a quarrel over $15 
in wages which Payette owed Beck- 
man, who was for a time employed !>>• 
the former as a cook ai a boardin;; 
house at the Mammoth mine, Coloma 
Payette came to Missoula three davs

Beckman arrived in the cltv yesterday 
and shortly after he arrived calle.l 
upon Sheriff MiLaughlin and wanted 
him to arrest Payette for the dei>t. He 
was informed that the arrest would he 
made if he procured a v.arrant, Ht 
then called upon Judge Landers and 
tried to procure a warrant, but the 
judgv^ would not issue it unless Fieck- 
man would put up a bond for the costs. 
At both places Beckman said he was 
to leave 'the sfate for Rossland.

Two Matters Discussed at the 
Caucus Yesterday. 

I The council in caucus yesterday af- 
ternoon discussed the uniform charter 
bill and appropriations to charitable in- 
stitutions, the Humane society and the 
Bethel. A resolution was reported by 
the auditing and finance committee fix- j 
ing the total appropriations for the year ' 
at $H30, to be paid in monthly install- ' 
ments, a.s follows: Duluth Home so- 
ciety, $20.83; Bethel, $20.83; Women's 
hospital, $1.5; Humane society, $12.50. 

Alderman Burg reported that the 
Women's and Children's home had 
been found in poor condition. Th< 
rooms are smaFl. he said, and the chil- 
dren seemed sickly. They had better, 
he thought, be kept on the poor farm, 
where they could have more fresh air! 
This institution, the committee had 
learned, receives donations from othei 
quarters. The Bethel he said, is mak- 
ing money and has money in hand. 

Alderman Shannon said that the fact 
the home is not kept up in goo<i condi- 
tion is a poor reasem for cutting off aid 
to it, as its condition is due to a lack of 
funds. He knew that there had not been 
money enough to buy fuel to keep the 
building properly heated at all times 
this winter. The children get all th> 
fresh air that any children in a city 
can get. Mr. Burg should remember, 
he said, that the sickly appearance that 
impressed him was the reason, in many 
cases, for their being at the home. Thf

institution primarily. It is doing a good 
work in furnishing meals cheap, and 
the opposition to it came from the re»

Alderman Richardson thought the 
Bethel should be encouraged, as it has 
the effect of keeping men out of saloons. 

Alderman Burg remarked, in reply, 
that the saloon keepers are a most lib- 
eral class of men. If a man does not 
want to get into a saloon, he said, let 
him keep out. "The city received $100.- 
000 from the saloon men last year." he 
said, "and it certainly does not get any

Pretty Entertainment at Kala- 
mazoo Hall Last Evening. 

There was a very pretty and interest- 
ing children's masquerade at the Kala- 
mazoo block last evening, under the 
auspices of the Jewish Ladles' Relief so- 
ciety, the object being to raise money 
to carry on the charitable work of the 
society. There were half a hundred 
children, from 2 to 14 years of age. In 
costume, and they held tiie floor until 
9:.30. At that time the plder folks came 
on. and danced until midnight. Re- 
freshments and good music filled out 
the evening. Among thosL* in costume 
were the following: Elsie Sillierstein 
and Josephine Sattler. Roman girls: 
Sadie Mondshein, Italian musician; 
Hattie Levi, Topsy; Stella Bondy, 
quaker.?8s; Rosie Freimuth, flower girl;

Crestone. Saguache Co., Colorado. 
E. E. Barnidge, Esq., Vermilion Hotel, 

Tower. Minn.: 

Dear Sir— I observe by the Toronto 
and other provincial newspapers that 
things are humming beautifully in On- 
tario. Long may they continue to im- 
prove. I do not know whether Mr. 
Brunton will return again to Ontario or 
not, but I intend to return myself in 
the spring or early summer. I believe 
there is a great future in store, not 
only for Ontario, but Northern Minne- 
sota as well. The geological features 
many miles on both sides of the line 
are mu(-h on a par and in many places 
which I observed from Vermilion lake 
on to Seine river the rock formation is 
mineral bearing and there is as good a 
field to prospect on the south side of 
the line on to Vermilion lake as there 
is north of the boundary line, and it 
only requires intelligent prospectors to 
prospect the country to show it up. 

"I think the state ought to have the 
road from Vermilion lake on to Crane 
lake put in good order. It is a perfect 
disgrace in its present shape — nothing 
like it anywhere in the wilds of Colora- 
do — and you folks in Tower and those 
along the line ought to — for your own 
Interests — petition the state govern- 
ment to have the road put in good 

I wonder that your state geologist 
does not bring before the government 
the immense mineral bearing field in 
Northern Minnesota which is ready to 
be opened up. The Canadians are go- 
ing ahead in fine style advertising to 
the world what they have got and they 
have got nothing better In Ontario than 
what Northern Minnesota has. If your 
friend's claim is uncovered and not 
sold before I get your way in the spring 
I'll be pleased to look at it with a view 
t business. DANIEL MACLAREN, 

Duluth has evidently been hungerinv, 
for a spectacular performance, for "'The 
Devil's Auction" drew a great audience 
at the Lyceum last evening. The gal- 
lery was crowded almost to suffocaiioi>. 
At 7:30 o'clock, when the gallery door 
I was opened, there was a tremendou.s 
[ crush at the door, and a ho-vling, strug- 
gling mob of men and boys piled up tlu: 
stairway when admission was given. 
Standing room was at a premium in the 

"The Devil's Auction' is Ijetter this 
year than ever, and it seems to suit tlio 
taste of last evening's audience to a 
nicety, for apidause was given in great 
quantities. As is usual in spectacular 
Iierformanccs, the speaking parts, those 
that bring out what little plot and story 
there is in the production, were poorly 
taken, but one never looks for anything 
different, and there is no disai)poini- 
ment in this respect. It is the siiecial- ; 
ties, the dancers, the acrobats, etc., that 
people 'go to see. and these were good. 
The dancers were among the cleverest, 
considered as a whole, that have been t 
seen here. The "daiK-e of Hit- e<-ct-n- j 
triques" was especially good and the i 
dance. '"The feast of lanterns," was ■ 
biilliant and pleasing. The "comic pas- 
de duex," by Signoiianas Maverhoppi-i 
and Bartoletti, was very clever. Th<- 1 
bashful maidens, with solo by Miss 
Mayo, was a popular bit of nonsense, j 
and the timid old maids led by Richard ' 
Brown brought down the house. The ' 
"musical nurses." giving a sleigli-liell ; 
chorus, was excellent, and the "hoboes : 
soiree," on the Bowery order, was weM ' 

Miss Minnie Mayo is a clever sou- 
brette and has some good specialtic-:^. \ 
Her song with accompaniment on tht- ■ 
banjo, an instrument whicli she handKs | 
excellently, was the most poi)ulai-. 
George Melville is a go<»d comedian 
and sustains the comedy portion of the 
production very creditably. William 
Ruge as Chaos, the imp, was given a 
fine reception. He is a remarkably 
clever acrobat and twists himself into 
some exceedingly grotescjue jiositions. 
The aerial grotesques. Torner and 
Froebel, do an amusing and rather 
startling' turn. But to enumerate all 
the specialties and concerts wouki n- 
quire too much space. Suffice" it to say 
that the whole show is filled witli them 
and that they are all good. 

"The Devil's Auction " will be repeqttd 
this evening.

Tomorrow George R. Wendling will 
lecture at the First Methodist church on 
"Saul of Tarsus." It Is a lecture on 
orators and oratory, and not, as might 
be supposed, a religious discussion. The 
New York Observer says this of Wend- 

"His style is earnest, clear, impas- 
sioned, and at times his utterance is 
tremendous, thrilling his audience with 
voice and manner suited to the force 
and value of the great truth he brings. 
It is enough to say he spoke two soli^l 
hours, and few were conscious of the 
flight of half that time." 

The January Gr«nd Jury Files 
a Record. 

The minutes of the lengthy setting of 
the January term grand jury were file*] 
in the c-lerk's oflice yesterday, and they 
contain a few interesting hints as to 
what matters the grand jury touched 
upon, some of which were not men- 
tioned in the report, probaldy because 
ui)on investigation the jury fitund that 
everything was all right. For one Ihin^;. 
the minutes show that the jury care- 
fully examined the bank accounts of 
every alderman, who has been in oflice 
since 1894, and representatives of every 
bank in town, active or defunct, was 
called up for this purpose. 

The jury spent some time in 
looking into the contract let to Fred 
Grant for the ccmstruction of the stone 
work on the famous addition to the 
court house, apparently without re- 
sult, for the jury's report generally con- 
demned the expensiveness of the addi- 
tion without going into details. It ai>- 
pears from the minutes also that there 
was an "investigation of the manner in 
which the city officials conduct their 
official duties, with especial reference 
to gambling, saloon?- and prostitution." 

The juiT also investigated the man- 
ner in which the Duluth Gas and Water 
company has been run and its efforts 
to sell the plant to the city at various 
elections. The work on the city water- 
works now under construction was also 
Investigated, particularly the IMds on ' 
the pump house and intake pipe. The 
Johnson bridge contract was investi- 
gated, too. two of the agents of bridge 
companies who gave such sensational i 
testimony in court being upon the car- |

the reduciicsns he approves of and sone 
he does not. and he put in some time to- 
day considering whether it was In-st to 
hold ui» the- measure on account of ih. 
reductions uhich he does not conside 
are wise. He is against tlie measure a- 
a whole, he said this morning. 

"The total reduction amounis to aboui 
$372 per month," said he. "which will

city clause is an effort to counteract tl.e 
ill effects of mal-legislation, which this 
.same bill proposes to enact. If reports 
be true, it is more thnn likely that sonu; 
safety valve will be needed, for already 
France. Canada and other governments 
are preparing to resist this assault on 

"The increase, according to their own 
showing, makes this bill more than one- 
sixth higher than the McKinley law. 
How absurd is the contention that high 
taxation and great prosperity 'go hand 
in hand. The Democratic party stands 
and has ever stood for low taxes. Wt- 
are here to proclaim and sustain this 
principle of our party. Only five years 
ago the Democratic party voted for free 
lumber in the house, not one of tlie 
party voting against it, as I remember. 
It put wool on the free list by a ma- 
jority of 194 to 60. not a Democrat vot- 
ing against it. It is not here to advo- 
cate taxed wool and free cotton bag- 
ging; not here to demand taxed cotton 
ties and free grain bags; nut here to de- 
mand free lumber and advocate a res- 
toration of the duty on w<io!; not here as 
a party to a tax on 57.000 I)ales of long 
cotton imported to this country, but at 
the same time to advocate the removal 
of the duty upon everything else. No; 
it is here to proclaim the ancient doc- 
trine of taxing things at as low rates 
as is consistent with rai.sing revenue 
necessary to support the government, 
and taxing nothin'g except for the pur- of revenue. Tainff for revenue only used doctrine in the j.ast history." 

In conclusion he said: "I I)eg the 
gentlemen on the other side to remeni- 
l)er that the victory obtained last fall 
was obtained by such an expenditure of 
money, such an exertion of bulldozing 
and force and such a prostitution of an 
election as never before witnessed 
in this land. They must ruit take such 
a verdict as the established and the 
irrevocable will of the Ain.rican people. 
I beg them to rememttt r that a pur- 
chased verdict cannot stiind. The Dem- 
ocratic party has sufffrcl defeat before, 
and by stern adherenct- to the never- 
failing principles It has retrained power 
and readministered thi- government. 
Let us now and here prove anew that 
the principles of Jefferson. Jackson and 
of Polk shall be the nrimiples of the 
Democratic party now as they have 
been in the past, and as sure as light 
succeeds night it will ntiirn to power 
and restore the government to its con-

how the vigorous and vehement gentle- 
man from New York (Mr. Payne) stood 
up and lauded the Republican party for 
taking the tax from sugar. 

"If the transfer to the free list of 
sugar anri gave the greatest 
relief, then it must follow that the r— 
imposition of the high tax on sugar will 
give the greatest hardship now. These 
gentlemen must confess themselves as 
standing for nn incii>ase of the burdens 
of the people, according to their own 
lonfession. Not only hnve they rolui- 
posed this burdtn of taxation, but in 
doing so they have taken good care of 
the corporations and trusts which now 
control the sugar market. The proiit 
to the trust is raised l)y this bill from 
onc-ei'ghth of a cent per pound by the 
present law to from S't to 50 cents on 
the hundred pounds difference between

The gentleman from Maine tells us 
they have taken luml>er, salt, wcjol, 
bagging, cotton ties and books from the 
free list and put a tax upcm them. Why 
does he not tell us the reason for re- 
taining free salt for his Maine fisheries 
and imposing a duty on salt used else- 
where? Why dcjes he not exnlain the 
reason for increasing the duties on lin- 
1 oleum? The same grades linoleum 
(some grades) to between 100 and 200 per 
cent, when it is in a trust, when one 
I large concern in his own state has not 
I lost a day's work in many years. We 
j make two-thirds c)f all the cotton that 
I is produced in the world, and two-thirds 
1 of all we make is shipped abroad; bag- 
I "ging that surrounds it and ties thai 
I bind it are total loss, being consumed 111 
the United States. Makers of bagging 
I in this country organized a gigantic 
I trust to rob the farmer. Ties can bi> 
made as cheaply here as anywhere in 
the world. Why did he not give us some 
reason for thus hampering agriculture 
and smiting the tiller of the soil? 

"Mr. Chairman, this bill not only 
carries higher rates of duty than the 
present limit and higher rates than the 
McKinley. t»ut higher than any la.v 
ever passed by an .\merican congress. 
The claim that it increases the burd* n 
only on luxuries is not sustained by 
facts. Are shawls and knit goods lux- 
uries? Are wool hats and overshoes 
luxuries? Are knives and forks in tlii.s 
urbane age luxuries? And I beg with all 
deference to ask whether in the state of 
Maine a clean shirt has become such a 
rarity that it is classed with the lux- 
uries? I ask him when anions Ameri- 
cans sugar that sweetens our tea and 
coffee became a luxury; when trace 
chains became a luxury to the farmer? 
Not only is the bill itself higher, but the 
different schedules average above those 
of the McKinley liill. 

"The reclprtjcity clause is remarkable 
for the fact that it nuts into the hands 
of the president absolute power to im- 
pcjse tastes and remit taxes at pleasuie. 
He can impose them this month, remit 
tliem next. He can do so without con- 
vening congress, or consulting it if con- 
vened. The taxing nower is thereby 
surrendered by congress, its constitu- 
tional repository, to an executive who 
was never clothed with such powers by 

Great Britain, and Henry White, sec. j any statute framed by those who 
retary of the embassy at London. 1 adopted the constitution. The recipix>- 


We are here, he declared, to execute 
the people's demands. The demand of 

the intelligent for a protective tariff 
system comes not from partisan utter- 
ances, but from the men of all parties 
and from evei-y section of the country. 
The fruit-grower of California, robi)t*d 
and ruined by the Wilson bill, cries 
louoiy to Republicans for assistance, 
and from Alabama and Georgia, and 
conspicuously from Louisiana, come?- 
the tarnost demand for the passage of 
this bill. What, then, is the greai. 
necessity of this hour? Two deadly 
evils are upon us — unemployed labor 
and a bankrupt treasury. There can 
be no business confidence in this coun- 
try when the treasury of the I'nited 
States is without funds to meet its cur- 
rent obligations. 

Mr. Grosvenor paid .some attention to 
the statements that althou-gh McKinley 
was elected, prosperitv had not yet 
come. Gentlemen, he asserted, must 
bear in mind that a violation of law 
always merits and always receives 
I»unishments. The country that would 
turn its back upon the prosperity c;f 
1.S92 and "de.scend into the blunder of 
1.S94 must expect punishment.' There 
was no better dcx-trine in all the range 
of human thought than that the bless- 
ings that follow lepentence come only 
when "works meet for repentence have 
lieen done." There stands upon the 
statute book of today the accursed law 
that was put there by the blind Bourbon 
Democracy. While it stands there 4»t; 
curse will remain. The curse is lignl- 
ened, however, by the prospect that 
works meet for repentence will bie ac- 
complished, and so from Maine to Cali- 
fornia there comes the cheering sound 
of improved conditions, but while this is 
being done, while the shouts of antici- 
pated emancipation are coming to us 
from all sources, while enormous con- 
tracts for production which will insure' 
the employment of enormous C4uantititd 
of idle labor are coming tn us, the 
Democratic party cjn this floor, with its 
allies, all alike, are standing, holding on 
to the coat tails of the world and lead- 
ing back imi)eding the i>rogress of thai 
prosperity, they shout a "v.hcja" to the 
moving mass of American people. You 
have not only Irought this curse upon 
the country, bul you are trying to hold 
it there. 

Continuing. Mr. (Grosvenor said In 
part: "It has been the of the 
ways and means committee to present 
s measure here; that would bring tirst 
an abundance cf money in the treasury, 
and. second, the employment of the 
labor of the country. We want to go 
back to 1892. We want to see what we 
have not seen since then, contented 
laborers and well-fed families. We be- 
lieve we have accomplished it. We 
have provided in this bill for the ex- 
penditure in the United States ulti- 
mately of more than $.'?00,000.000 per an- 
num to the laborers of the country 
above that which has been uerived 
heretofore. We believe that the farmer 
on the mighty farms of the West and 
everywhere will be benefited by this 
Idll. The policy of this bill has and is 
and will be, if it should pass intc. law. 
to give to the laborer that degree of 
employment in the ITnited States which 
will cause to be expended in this coun- 
try every dollar that is expended for 
such products of the soil, the mine, the 
shop and the factory that we can pro- 
duce in the United States on equal 
terms with the foreign producer." 

Then turning aside from a discussion 
of the merits of the tariff, Mr. Grosve- 
nor reviewed and criticised in scathing

Flood Expected There if Warm 
Weather Comes. 

St. Paul, March 24.— (Special to The 
Herald.) — The conditions seem favorable 
for a flood in the vicinity of St. I'aul, 
Warm weather accomj^anied bv rains 
would cause the trouble. The gorge in 
the Minnesota river has broken, and for 
the past three or four days the Missis- 
sippi river has risen at the rate of one 
foot in twenty-four hours. Less than 
a week ago the water stood at two feet 
on the gorge, and last night it was near- 
ly .seven feet and it is steadily rising. 

If the present cold weather continues 
long enough to allow the water to flow 
off naturally, a flood may be averted. 
The danger line on the river is four- 
teen feet, but it is the opinion of Ob- 
server Lyons that this will be soon 
reached if hot weather sets in. The 
Pats on the south side of the river are 
covered with water to a greater extent 
than they have been for years, and tlie 
residents will probably be affected to 
a greater or less degree, even if the flood 
is averted. 

Observer Lyons .said yesterday: "If 
the present weather continues we shall 
escape the danger of a flood. The 
frost that followed the recent thaw and 
lains has held the immense l>ody of 
snow in check and is permitting the 
excess water to get away. If the 
weather continues cold for the remain- 
der of March all will be well, I think. 
The indications at present are for con- 
tinued cold weather. If a warm wave 
should come, a flood on the Missi.ssipjii 
river would follow, the consequences of 
which are h.-ird to pri^dicl. But judg- 
iiig from the present conditions. I sec 
no reason for immediate alarm."

Sioux Falls. S. D.. March 2i.— The big 
Sioux at 6 p. m. last night was sixteen 
inches below that at the same hour 
Monday, which was high water mark 
since 18S1, but seven feet below the- 
mark of that year. Milwaukee railroad 
officials arrived with dynamite to blow 
out the big gorge, which holds fast 
above town. Two men started in a boat 
across the iiottoms to fix a telephone 
wire. An ice floe crushed the bcjat like 
an egg shell and the men drifted 600 
feet. They fastened themselves to a 
telephone pole with climliers and were 
rescued two hours later nearly frozen. 
Water on the bottoms is fifteen feel 
deep in places. Much unthreshed gram 
on the bottoms is ruined.

Far Reaching Effect of the 
Supreme Court Decision.

having headciiiarti-rs in CliicMgo is ap- 
parently in :i c-(inclitii)ti approaching dis- 
solution ;is a rc.-oill of the decision of the 
supreme court declaring all such iHtols 
to be ill violation of the Sherman anti- 
trust. One road, the Atchison, lias taken 
quiet action :jiid has served imtice of 
withdrawal from ail freight asscjeiutions 
of which it has been a member. Besides 
the Santa Fe. the Burlington, the Minne- 
apolis & St. Louis, Wisconsin Central. 
Chicago-Great Western, and sciveral 
others are said to have already forward- 
eci notice of withdrawal. No notice of a 
withdrawal from the Western Passenger 
association or any other passenger asso- 
ciations of the West have been given. 

There is hardly a doubt that these will 
have to go by the board. Chairman Ryer- 
son, of the interstate commerce commis- 
sion, has rendered an opinion that the 
Trans-Missouri Freight association deci- 
sion applies to jjassenger as well as 
freight associations of every character.

partisan whitewash, will be agreeably

terially different. The Times says it i.^ 
ablo to predict with practical eertaimy 
that there will be two substantial re- 
sults of the investipration. besides th«- 
educational effect: First, there will b,.

the conimitt--e. severely arraisnint? his

bill reducing his salary iT. per cent an.l 
cutting down his force one-half or more 
to prevent the future use of the bureau 
in gettin.e: out campaign documents at 
the cost of the state. 

The bill to reduce the pay and f..rce 
t>f the bureau will be introduced within 
a few days, and probably today. It 
will cut the salary of the commis- 
sioner from J2500 to $200. and will re- 
duce the force to one factory inspec- 
tor and one deputy at $1000 each. The

His Statement Made to the

to Tile 
tax bill 

St. Paul. March 24.— (Special 
Heralil.)— The Reeves mining 
late yesterday afternoon jias.sed tiu- by a vote of t>2 to 4t>. The passagt 
was att.-nded by an incident somewhat 
-sensational, and it may fairly be .sai^i 
that the efforts of the lobby in opposi- 
tion to the bill contributed largely and 
essentially to the passa¥:e uf the bib. 
Mr. Johnson, of Freeborn countv. 

In the morning the snow fell as if mil- 
lions of white birds were shedding their 
feathers. By noon the snow had turned 
into a sulKn, beating rain, yet the sun 
set in umiiKKled glory. That is the his- 
tory of an American spring day. This sorL 
of spring does not inspire poets, but it 
unchains the demon called Grip, and 
what haviic he makes in the community: 
No trouble to tell when he has begun 
his miselii.f. The headache, that banishes 
rest by da> and makes night a long tor- 
ture; the pain in bone and muscle; tht 
nervousnc^.s : the coush that refuses to bf 
quieted, ;in<l the rawness of throat and 
the soreness of lung, all tell the story. 

Naturally this vicious foe to life has 
set the doctors thinking, talking and 
writing. Pm- once they are agreed. The 
best of all (Jrip medicines is a stimulant 
to rouse every latent energy of the body, 
and at the same time to be free from 
every tra( e of deleterious matter. 

The one stimulant that meets thesi 
conditions is Duffy's pure malt whisky. 
So says public opinion; so says the med- 
ical |>rofe.~;.sion. Always, at tbi.s time of 
the year, keep a bottle of this wbiskv iii 
the house, and .vou need have no fear of 
Grip or 01 its consequences. For sale by

His Fight on IMerriam Lefi 
Strained Relations. 

Minneapolis, March 24.— A Washing- 
ton special to the Tribune says: Presl 
dent McKinley told a Minnesota niai. 
today that he and Senator Davis had 
had a little mi.sunderstanding^ in refer- 
ence to the appointments, and that, 
until the matter was again talked over, 
there would be nothing done towards 
making any nominations for positions 
of any sort from Minnesota. This is 
rather a startling proposition, cominj.; 
as it does from the chief executive him 
self, but a little investigation provec 
that r Is true. At the last visit to thi 
Wh I. House the president and the 
seni • senator had quite a lively cou- 
ver.sation over the of ex-Oovernoi 
Merriam. Davis was urging Hubbard, 
and the president suddenly interrupted 
the conversation by saying that he in- 
tended to do something for Merriam 
in the way of a foreign appointment, 
and that he desired to talk it over with 
the senators while they were there. 
Senator Nelson was present. 

Mr. Davis then gave his ultimatum to 
the president. He came out very plainlj 
and told the president that linder w, 
cireutnstances would be (Davis) oonseiu 
to Merriam's confirmation for a foreign 
mi.ssion or for any other place of re- 
sponsibility and honor. He gave hh 
reasons and became so earnest in hi-- 
statements that the president became 
quite surprised. Moreover. Davis told 
the chief executive that he had .soniv 
nght.s that must be respected as a 
I'nited States senato?-. and that hi 
Would withhold his support from al 
candidates for positions until after tw

The Times has talked with enough 
members of the committee to know 
that P.iwers is in for a roast at the eom- 
mu tee's hands. The views of Senato.-? 
Rmgdahl and Me Hale, who represent 
the minority on the committee, are well 
kn.)wn. They have no partisan feeling* 
t.. protect in the matter, and the 
.harges have been so well sustained bv 
the of the bureau force that 
the way of these two committeemen i-. 
clear. The only question has been what 
the Republican members would do t<> 
meet party demands for a whitewash 
That question is practically settled thi« 
far— there will be no whitewash The 
facts are so plain that a whitewash i-^ 
out of the question. 

Enough of the Republican member? 
of the committee have expressed them- 
selvesinprivateconversation to warrant 
a good stiff report on Powers when tht 
testimony is complete. Said one o.- 
the members, whose name the Time« 
withholds for obvious reasons: 

"If there ever was an official who 
abused his office, it Is that man Powers. 
Think of his brazen effrontery in using 
the state's appropriation and the whol*^ 
force of the bureau for weeks in getting 
out his private enterprise. 'Farmer 
Hayseed.' That fact has been estab- 
lished without chance for an exception

But the most common expression <if

a Hennepin senat'ir yesterday: 

"That man Powers has written him. 
self down as a consummate ass. He is 
the most tiresome ass I ever met in my 
experience. A man who will conduct 
an office as he has conducted it. ignor-

The testimony will be completed on 
the side of the promoters of the investi-

members of the labor bureau will be put 
on the stand, and then W. W. Erwin 
will sum up the testimony. Powers 
will have an inning next, and then the 
committee will take a hand and make 
a report. The latter will probably be 
forthcoming about the first of next 
week. Whether the State Federation

Wheat opened easy today at a de- 
cline of from 14 to %c. There was very 
little trade, one reason, and perhaps. 
the principal one for the decline. The 
bulls had plenty of crop damage re- 
ports again, but the bears were w«)rk- 
ing the same vein, and as the wheat 
crop is not wiped clean off the face of 
the land, they were able to receive re- 
ports of fields that \vere progressins 
' abundantly. Chicago had nineteen 
1 cars and .■J4.0<H) bushels were Inspected 
out of store. Rail shipments were 54,- 
, 631 bus. Spot wheat at Liverpool 
opened unchanged, but futures i/^d 
higher. One private cablegi-am from 
Liverpool said wheat was firm with an 
upward tendency. 
' Trading was very dull on the Du- 
j luth board. May opened »4c lower at 
I 73%c. Before the end of the first hour 
it was back to 73»4c and ruled steadv 
up to 1 o'clock. The close was with 
I buyers at 73^c, a decline of »ic for the 
, day. The mills bought 1.5,000 bus at the 
^ May price, and the elevators took 10.-

Democratic party on national issues. 
while he commended in warm terms the 
record of the Republicans on these 
matters. In conclusion he said: "And 
my countrymen, in this hour the Re- 
publican party is called upon by voicei; 
that sound out of all the memories of 
the past and .sound out of all the teach- 
ings of today to stand by the principles 
of its party and give to the country this 
enactment; give to the country this 
Dingley law. It is our dutv and oui 
advantage, my Republican friends, to 
participate in this great battle. Do 
not be misled by the attacks of the en- 
emies of this law; stand together; stand 
for the principles of your party, and in 
the coming years it will be said of y/iu: 
•This man and his party brought the 
country out of the wilderness of Dem- 
ocratic ruin and depression, and 
bi-ought it across the Jordan of discf.rd 
and troubli' and brought it into the 
promised land of prosperity and happi- 
ness.* "

thing you wai:. to notice in reading 
the crop news; every one seems to ad- 
mit that the early sown wheat is in 
good condition. The claims of damage 
refer mostly to late sown wheat. I can- 
not understand how in March it is pos- 
sible to determine what the outcome of 
the late sown wheat is likely to be. Fn 
this reason it is likely 10 prove wise no; 
to make up your mind fully what th- 
winter wheat yield is going to l)e. A 
wet spring is generally considered fa- 
vorable for winter wheat, and that we 
will suiely have. II may result in rt- 
stricting the seeding in the .Northwest: 
at any rate, it must neci's.saiily be 
late. The weakest feature in the mar-

they seem to expect to get enough

deafnp:ss cannot be cured 

By local applications, as they cannot 
r»'ach the disea.sed portion of the ear. 
There Is oi?ly one way to cure deafness, 
and that Is by constitutional remedies. 
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi- 
tion of the mucous linirg of the Eusta- 
chian Tube. When this tube gets In- 
flamed you have a rumbling sound or im- 
perfect hearing, and when It Is entirely 
closed is the result, and unless 
the inflammation can be taken out and 
this tube restorwl to Us normal condition, 
hearing will be destroved forever; nine 
ca.s«>s i>«t of ten are cau.4e<l by catarrh, 
which is nothing but an Intlarned condi- 
tion of the mucous surfaces. 

We will give one hundred dollars for 
any case of deafness (caused by catarrh) 
that cannot be cured bv Halls Catarrh

must be remembered that If a bill were 
Introduced limltin;; all buildiriKn to two 
stories the owners of all out-lying real 
estate would l>e interested in such a 
mt^aaure, and would larprely respond to 
its support. Every owner of a small 
flour mill wishes that there were no 
mills to compete against with a prreater 
capacity than 250 barrels per day. 
Without further amplification, how- 
ever, it is only necessary to say that 
this is essentially a competitive world. 
Lawyers compete, doctors compete, 
merchants compete, manufacturera 
compete, farmers compete, everybody 
■ competes. If the leprislature is to ln« 
' tervene in behalf of the one line mer- 
: chant, why discriminate against the 
I rest of the citizens of the state?" 
I The controlling factor in the situa- 
tion must be the greatest good to the 
greatest number. The consumers, who 
are benefited by the fierce competition 
of the department stores, comprise 
practically all the people. Their inter- 
ests must be consulted first, especially 
as the ability of the buying public now 
to purchase even the necessaries of life 
is limited. It would be a positive in- 
justice to do aught that would increase 
the prices of necessaries, and this is the 
manifest intention of the department 
store bill. By combining in the pur« 
chase of goods the one line merchants 
can overcome the conditions which they 
allege are driving them to the wall.

Misrch 2t.— The storm has movt<i north- 
eastward from the Middle Mississippi 
and Lower (.)hlo valleys, with increased 
intensity, and is now ct-ntral over Lake 
Krie. Heavy precipitation has resulted in 
IlliriKis. Indiana. Eastern Iowa. Lower

durinji the past twenty-four hours wi.-< 
one inch, and snow continued at the 
morning obser\"ation. I,.ight local snows 
have fallen in Eastern Montana and the 
atljoining sections of the Dakotas. 

The local columns of the News Tri- 
bune this morning contained the follow- 

that a uniform charter prepared and 
enacted in this manner would be per- 
manent. The St. Paul Pioneer Press 
points out that there is no guarantee 
of permanence. It says: "A feature 
that may be deemed admirable in St. 
Paul or Duluth may rrtuse opposition 
among politicians in A\inneapolis. At 
every session of the legislature its re- 
tention will necessitate a keen struggle. 
Constant, increasing vigilance and con- 
stant bickering will be the price all 
three cities will have to pay for acharter 
which, at its best, will not be entirely 
satisfactory to all concerned. Again, 
even if the legislature should keep its 
hands off. will the courts do the same, 
or can It be expected of them? Clearly 
not. I'niess. then, every ruling of the 
courts In the three districts are sub- 
jected to review by the supreme court, 
the charters will be divergent. Con- 
sequently not even uniformity can be 

In view of these facts, and on ac- 
count of the stand taken by the aldei- 
men that the proposed charter would 
affect this city injuriously. The Herald 
believes that the senator and repre- 
sentatives from tbis district will per- 
form their duty to their constituents by 
opposing the passage of the bill. With 
the heavy amount of business now be- 
fore, the legislature, it is manifestly im- 
possible for it to give this subject the 
attention that it deserves. It would 
make many radical changes in city gov- 
ernment and should l)e very carefully 
considered before being enacted, if it 
be deemed desirable to make it a law. 
This careful consideration cannot be 
given to it s<» late in the session. Before 
another session of the legislature the

; over the dispatch from Washington to 
the effect that the Hawaiian consulship 
has been promised to a California man. 
It is said that the coirespondent that 
wrote this important information ha*, 
persistently written down Mr. Nichols, 
though the cause of his grudge is un- 
known, for the two are said never to 
have met, and Mr. Nichols has as in- 
sistently overturned the dire predictions 
of Van Antwerp." 

The Washington dispatch referred to 
was a special to The Herald, and Mr. 
Van Antwerp, who is mentioned as hav- 
ing a "grudge" against Mr. Nichols, is 
the Washington correspondent of The 
Herald. It is needless to say that there 
Is not a word of truth in the slur which 
the morning prevaricator casts at Mr. 
Van Antwerp's motives. He is one of the 
ablest correspondents at Washington, 
and certainly the leader in news affect- 
ing the Northwest. He has no personal 
axes to grind, politically or otherwise, 
and has no feeling for or against Mr. 
Nichols or any other applicant for 
public office. This may seem peculiar 
to the radically different class of peo- 
ple who try to publish a morning paper 
in Duluth, but he is a newspaper man 

ly familiarize themselves with the pro- 
visions of the bill, its weaknesses can 
be found out and remedied, and the 
members of the legislature can become 
intimately acquainted with the popular 
wishes regarding the whole subject. 

The Minneapolis Journal i)ublished 
an Interesting cartoon yesterday 
representing the reason why Minne- 
sota is faring so poorly in the distri- 
bution of federal offices. It depicts the 
"Minnesota Delegation Brass Band,'" 
showing the senators and representa. 
fives from this st.ate in band uniforniss

New York Times: If Mr. Gladstone 
were a decade younger his letter upon 
the concert of Europe would carry him 
Into power again upon a wave of enthu- 
siasm which none of the previous suc- of his lonK career has raised. That 
cannot be. But it is nevertheless a great 
thing that the grand old man of 88 should 
become In his extreme age the voice not 
ot England alone, but of Europe, of 
Christendom, of civilization. 

Philadelphia Inquirer: It must make the 
shilly-shallying statesmen of England 
blush to hear Mr. Gladstone picturini? 
Greece as a David facing six Goliaths. 
declaring that she has by her bold action 
conferred a great service upon Europe, 
that she has made it po.ssible to palter 
with the question as the governments pal- 
tered with the blood-stained questions of 
Armenia, and that as to the notion that 
Greece Is to be coerced or punished he 
hardly likes to sullv the page on which he 
writes by the mention of an alternative 
•so detestable. 

New York World: Popular government 
is always the safest, the strongest, the 
most stable. It does most for peace, for 
progress, for higher civilization. It min- 
imizes injustice, it elevates the degraded, 
it rescues the world from the wickedness 
of the fools and the insanities of the 
madmen who as itlngs and emperors have 
made history a long record of barbaric 
violence and u.stless bloodshed. 

Chicago Times-Herald: It is always 
.safe to predict that when all other voices 
are hushed on some question involving 
thf freedom of the human race and the 
maintenance of the Christian religion Mr. 
Gladstone will be heard protesting with 
vigor and directness in behalf of right 
and against wronp. There is something 
heroic in the spectacle of this man of 87 
years coming forward from his well-earned 
retirement to voice the feelings of the 
great mass of christian people in the 
face of the cowardice or indifference of 
the younger generation of politicians. 

Chicago ReconI: For more than half 
a century Gladstone has been a student 
of the Eastern question, and added weight 
and Interest are piven to his words bv 
the fact that again, as he has so often 
done in the past, he voices the .sentiment 
of the English inople as opposed to a 
cold and scathin;,' diplomacy. This new 
and scathing arraignment of the policy 
of the powers ;<s respects Crete and 
Greece comes most opportunely. 

Chicago Inter-Ocean: This new pam- 
phlet treating the Grecian and Eastern 
<luestion from the Gladstonean point of 
view may in the present state of feeling 
in England contriluite to the overthrow 
of the Salisbury ministry, which over- 
throw woukl have tremendous influence 
in changing European policy.

Chicago Journal: Alas poor Corbet t, we 
knew him well.

in the use of the typewriter does not seem 
to have done him the slightest good.

The idea that laws should be passed 
to protect the one line merchants from 
the competition of the department 
stores appears to have found lodgment 
in the minds of some of our state legis- 
lators. Those who advocate such legis- 
lation Incorrectly claim that these large 
toncerns that combine numerous lines 
of trade under one roof are nothing but 
trusts that crush out all competition, 
and therefore should be suppressed. 
But a very little investigation will de- 
monstrate to any fair-minded man that Furthermore, he is not giving to faking

^Vhite House. In a window is President 
McKinley, with his hands over his 
ears, to shut out the discordant sound 
produced by the playing of nine dif- 
ferent tunes at the same time. Under 
the cartoon the following lines appear: 
"Worse than the "concert of Europe' 
is the unharmonious and discordant ' 
concert of the Minnesota delegation at 
Washington — no harmony and no 
•pie.' " It is ^n apt illustration of thJ 

There are many of them, each acting 
independently. They have not com- 
bined and conspired to control trade 
and put up the price of life's necessar- 
ies. On the contrary, there is no sharper 
competition than that between these 
great stores, and none that has done 
so much to reduce prices. It is a mis- 
chievous confusion of mind that con- 
founds this great, organized, perpetual 
and publicly beneficial competittion 
with the directly opposing principles ot 
trust conspiracy," 

It cannot be justly contended that the 
department store is a monopoly, when 
there is so much competition. It has 
reduced the cost of commodities to the 
consuming public, and this is why tli* 
one line merchant finds it so difficult t> 
compete. The ovnei^ of departmen*- 
stores buy goods in large quantities for • 
cash, and therefore secure very favor- 
able terms, and they sell them again at 
a very small margin of profit. The 1 
"mall merchant cannot do this, an?* ' 
*his is why he wants legislation to pro 
tect him from such serious competitior | 
Tn other words, he would compel thr I 
department store by law to raise thf , 
selling price of its goods, and thus Id 
crease the cost of the necessaries of lif' 
to the consuming public. This woulc' 
be uninst to the consumer, and woulf* 
naturallv arouse a storm of opposition 
from the people. If the one line mer- 
chants would compete with the depart - 
m*»nt stores, thev muL^t do it withou» 

usually making some egregious blunder 
by trying to conceal the fact that it.-? 
information was stolen from The Her- 
ald's columns. 

The Herald also is the only newspaper 
at the head of the lakes which gives 
daily reports of the proceedings of the 
Slate legislature at St. Paul. The read- 
ers of the News Tribune secure no in- 
formation whatever as to what the 
legislature is doing, because that 

would likely have vanished Into verv thin 

Chicago News: ,Iohn L. Sullivan has 
explained the whole affair. He says the 
reason Corbett mt i defeat was that he 
went into the rinn once too often. The 
startling flood of light this throws yn 
the vexed question will prove an immense 
relief to the couiitrv at large. 

Chicago Times-Herald: Just as soon 
as Mr. Corbett announced that he had 
•discovered a new knockout blow," a 
week ago, we wimied him that he would 
better hire an express company to deliver 
It. In the excitement Mr. Corbetfs new 
blow, it appears, was delivered to the 
wrong man, after all. 

Philadelphia Record: The excitement on 
the streets of the C.uiaker Citv Wednesday 
afternoon was so ^leat as to block travel 
on* the public thoroughfares in the neigh- 
borhood of telegrai'h bulletin boards. We 
are farther off from the millennium than 
the friends of international arbitration 
are willing to admit. 

New York Sun: As Corbett retreats 
into oblivion F'itzsimmons remains alone 
for us to wonder at. Truly he is a most re- 
markable perf.on. He has strength in no

The Chicago Times Herald thinks 
that Paul du Chaillu is likely to be the 
new minister to Sweden and Norway, 
and it adds: ••His appointment would 
be a very popular one with all the 
Scandinavians in America. It was Du 
Chaillu's book. 'The Land of the Mid- 
night Sun," that made Sweden and

tions of the beautiful scenery and the

An important measure was passed late • 
yesterday afternoon by the house of 
representatives, affecting St. Louis 
county. Reference is made to the 
Reeves' bill to tax the iron mines ac- 
cording to their output at -5 cents a 
ton. There was a sensation attending 
its passage, a charge of bribery being 
made openly on the floor of the house 
by the member from Freeborn county, 
but the News Tribune this morning had 
nothing about it. And yet it has the 
impudence to criticize the correctness 
of the special dispatches paid for and 
published exclusively by The Herald. 

The latest estimate of the world'h 
production of gold during 18% is made 
by the Pall Mall Gazette. It puts the 
total at 10,164,000 ounces, as com- 
pared with 9,652,000 ounces in 1895, 5,- 
711,000 ounces in 1890, 5,002,000 ounces 
in 1885, 5.211.000 ounces In 1880 and 
6,010,000 ounces In 1871. The American 
increase on the twelve months i& 
given at 364,000 ounces, but wait until 
the close of the present year and see 
the great increase, due to the oper- 
ation of the Rainy Lake gold mines. 

Fitzslmmons will give .satisfaction. It is 
a change, and the flckle populace prefers 
a rotation in honors of all .sorts. Corbett. 
too. though respected for his prowess 
and succi'sses, did not, like Sulliwtn. en-

separation from your faithful wife; but just stop a moment and thiiik! Your 
wiie, Who was ^en-tempered and amiable, and all that was lovely when you 
married her, has changed. Now she is peevish, irritable, jeal- 
ous, discontented and miserable— in a word, she has uterine

Law is not the remedy for this condition, she needs med- 
ical treatment, her uterine system is at fault. 

My advice to you is, sit down and write a 
letter to that friend of women. Mrs. Pinkham, 
of Lynn, Mass.. state fully and freely the 
whole case to her and she will honestly ad- 
vise you what to do. Give j-our wife that 
chance, good man !

^wife, bring her a bottle of liydia E. Pink-

fects, -vou will soon sec the beginning of

Cleaning Sidewalks. 

To the Editor of The Herald: 

Will you, if you please, let me call the 
attention of your readers to the fact 
that a bill is before the state legislature 
which proposes to give the city council 
authority and power to clean all side- 
walks in winter, and keen them free 
from snow unless this is done by the 
owner of the properly adjoining the side- 

The bill is proposed by my friend Mr. 
Snyder, who is, as I firmly believe, an 
able and honest man. I am sorrv he has 
presented this proposed bill. It is. in my 
judgment, a step and a long and impor- 
tant one in the wrong direction. It would 
g ve vast power into the hands of our 
aldermen, more than they now have as 
1 understand it. Minneapolis is nine 
miles long and seven wide, 1 speak ,-ip- 
proxlmately, by far the larger part of 
the lots are owned by men and women 
of limited means who at this moment are 
m arrears with taxes. Men and women 
who for years have complained that taxes 
are as large as they are. I am in favor 
strongly in favor, of clean sidewalks, 
but is it not as much the proper busi- 
ness of the city authorities to keep in 
good condition the sidewalk for men and 
women to walk on, as It is their business 
to keep in proper conditions that part of 
the street on which men with carriages 
drive? How is it that the owaers of 
proi)erty, poor men who have had to 
struggle to get a liome, are asked to bear 
this burden. It is a new thing. If th-> 
council had power to tax us for work 
of this kind they would not now iisk this 
legislation. All the people In the city 
have the advantage of good sidewalks 
If they are good, and the city council 
■xists for the good of all the people, and 
the proper cleaning of the walks should 
be done by the rity. 

If a bill should be introduced asking i 
farmer to keep up a sidewalk all the 
length of his farm, give the land upon 
which It was laid, pay for all the mate- 
rials and laying of It. keep it In repair 
in summer, free from snow in winter 
■'uch a measure would be laughed to scorn 
by every member of the legislature. Wh:U 
is now proposed is just as unreaso!i-

able. It Is said the council will onlv or- 
der the walks cleaned in the center of 
the cities and that only St. Paul. Duluth 
and Minneapolis will be included in the 
operation of this act. If this is true, il is 
fatal to the best Interests of the state 
Nothing is more demoralizing than to 
pass laws whi(-h are not intended to be 
enforced. I hope Mr. Snvder will with- 
draw this bill. He Is too good a man to 
have his name connected with such legis- 
lation. The comparatively poor are sure 
to curse the men who pass it, if it ever 
becomes law. Let us have clean side- 
walks, wherever needed; let the citv 
cleanse them effectively but at as reason"- 
able a cost as a private man would pay 
for like work, and the people will bles'j 
the men who give us this blessing.

Mr. HanFord Makes a State- 
ment Which Excites the 


Duluth Cycle Club May Break 
With the L. A. W. 

There was a larsre attendance at the 
meotinj: of the Duluth Cycle club held 
last night at the club rooms in the 
Kalamazoo block, and the question of 
affiliatine: with the L. A. W. was dis- 
cussed. The committee appointed in 
the matter reported that 75 per cent of 
the club membership was willing to i 
join if the idea was favorably con- 1 
sidered. A letter from M. L. Knowlton. | 
of Minneapolis, chief consul fi»r the ' 
state, was read, in which he stated that 
the state division is in excellent shape 
and receiving many new members. No 
steps toward secession, because of the 
league's opposition to Sunday racing, 
have been taken. 

\V. A. Whitelau. of Minneapolis, was 
present as a representative of the new 
organization to be made ^t the Min- 
neapolis cycle show April 19. He spoke 
in behalf of the new league and said 
that it would advocat'^ Sunday racing, 
and would pay more attention gener- 
ally to racing than does the L. A. W*. 
Both organizations have their advo- 
cates in the Duluth club and there was 
a long discusion. after which the re- 
port of the committee recommending 
that the club join the L. A. W. was 
laid upon the table. The track com- I 
mittee was increased to three mem- I 
hers. S. M. Linander. G. E. Booth and I 
C. C. Evans. It will meet the Agricul- , 
tural society and a report will be made I 
at the next meeting. The club gives a 
card party in its rooms tonight. 


oeorge r. wendlixg. 

Tonight George R. Wendling. the 
well-known lecturer, will speak at the 
First Methodist church. His subject 
will be "Saul of Tarsus," a discussion 
of orators and oratory and especially 
of Paul as an orator. This lecture has 
been a great success wherever it has 
been delivered. Mr. Wendling is a 
great lecturer. His methods involve in- 
cessant study and (taseless labor. His 
themes are great but old. and the fact 
that he avoids the sensational and 
takes the old themes and invests them 
I with new interest and throws new 
I and startling lights upon them, and 
, the further fact that the best critics 
always regard his latest lecture as his 
I best, prove him to be an orator of the 
; highest rank and a student and thlnk- 
[ er of great power and originality. 

Despite every form of discourage- 
ment, the City band has this year been 
l>rought to a total instrumentation of 
thirty pieces— the most effective in its i 
history. In 1SS6 it was organized as a' 
brass band, but today has a big reed I 
section comprising about one-third of 
the instrumentation and takes rank a.s 
one of the finest military bands in the I 
West. This great advance has been 
made possible largely through the 
hearty support invariably accorded 
the annual benefit concert. A large sum 
will be needed this year, which it h-.i 
hoped to realize from the concert at ' 
the Lyceum next Friday evening. The 
seat reservation opens Thursday morn- 
ing at the box office.

The kindergarten meeting at the 
Jackson .school last evening drew out a 
large crowd and there was great inter- 
est and earnestness displayed by all 
of the citizens, members of the board 
teachers and in fact everyone present" 
The meeting was called for the purpose 
of mforming the people as to the kin- 
dergarten work and secure expressions 
from them, the people and board mem- 
bers. The teachers were moved to do 
so by the fear that the board contem- 
plates the curtailment of the system 
Everybody agreed that much good was 
accomplished by the meeting and it 
undoubtedly served the purpose of 
bringmg the board and the people 
closer together. It looked for a moment 
toward the close as though the har- 
mony which had prevailed might be 
disturbed, but it proved happily to be 
not so. 

Miss Clark, superintendent of the kin- 
dergarten work in the schools presided 
and opened the meeting by giving a 
statement of the purpose for which it 
is called. 

Superintendent Denfeld discussed the 
question of what the kindergarten has 
accomplished in Duluth. He endorsed 
it highly and explained its effect upon 
the child's mental, moral and physical 

Mrs. J. D. Titcomb read an excellent 
paper on "Discipline in the Home and 
Kmdergarten. " Mrs. William S. 

Bishop also read an excellent paper ap- 
proving of the kindergarten work and 
read a story by Kate Douglas Wiggin. 
which presented some of its features. 

Miss Baker recited "The Storv of 
Patsy," illustrating for the benefit of 
the audience the manner in which the 
kindergarten tells a story to the child. 
Henry Brearly sang a number. 

A number of citizens were then called 
upon to speak. None of them pretend- 
ed to be very well posted, but all com- 
mended the kindergarten system. Rev. 
G. H. Humason spoke in practically the 
same strain that he did Sunday even- 
ing at the First Methodist church. He 
endorsed the work heartily and was 
very much opposed to seeing it cur- 

Henry F. Greene reminded the people 
that the city is very much in debt, and \ 
that it is necessary to economize in i 
every possible way. He would not. I 
however, have the kindergarten system 
done away with. He would like to see 
it extended into the poorer quarters of 
the city for he ijelieved that the chil- 
dren ther need it the most. He thought 
there were other directions in which 
the school system might be made less 
expensive and curtailment ought to be- 
gin in the high school rather than in 
the lower grades. Not more than 25 per 
cent of all the children of the city ever 
go into the high school and if any cut- 
ting is to be done it should be done 
there. He thought the kindergartens 
should be among the very last to re- 
ceive a reduction. 

George E. Arbury, A. E. McManus 
and others spoke approving the work. 

President Hugo, of the school board, 
was called upon. He appeared to be 
rather nettled over the turn matters 
had taken and characterized the agita- 
tion as a tempest in a tea pot, stirred 
up by the teachers, who feared some- 
thing was going to be done that had 
never beer contemplated. He certainly 
had heard nothing of it in the school 
board and his first information came 
through the newspapers and the whole 
thing had been started with out any 
cause, he said. He praised the kinder- 
gartens highly and said they would al- 
ways continue to be a part of the cur- 
riculum of the schools in Duluth. 

Dr. Bowman, who was supposed to 
be one of the school directors who had 
an ax reay for the kindergartens was 
called upon. He said that he hardly 
knew what this trouble was all about. 
He explained that he and Mr. Hanford 
composed the committee on special in- 
struction and had gone to Miss Clark 
and ask her for answers to some ques- 
tions with the intention of finding out 
whether the kindergarten work could

Sovereign Remedy For Rheumatism 
and All the Ailments Ensuing From 
Disorders of the Kidneys— Sliter, 
of Chetek Tells How Dodd's Kidney 
Pills Helped Him. 

Chetek, Wis., Dec. 18.— Of course if you 
want rheumatism you can get it. But 
do you know how to get rid of it if you 
get it and don't want it? That is the que.s- 

Rheumatism springs from disordered 
Kidneys. If you wanted pure water you 
would niter it. wouldn't you? 

If you want pure blood .you must filter 
it. That's what Kidneys are for— to filter 
the blood. But if the Kidneys get out of 
order, and don't filter properly, your blood 
becomes charged with impurities, and 
wherever they lodge tlity pain 

That's Rheumatism. 

Every disease has its cure. Rheumatism 

u'i^'^t'L *^H';*'' It is >»(>DD'S KIDNEY 
i'lL.L.S. It cures because it acts dire<tlv 
upon the Kidneys. It puts them in order. 
Then the Kidneys put the blood in order, 
and there you are— free from pains and 

This isn't theory. Plenty of people have 
taken DODD'S KIDNKY PILLS and have 
been cured. The makers of the pills offer 
a challenge for the ease of Rheumatism.

Twenty Stamp Mill Is Going 
In Very Soon. 

The Lyle Mining company that is 
operating the Little American mine 
near Rainy Lake City is moving the 
10-stamp mill located on the old Lyle 
property to the Little American and 
will purchase ten additional stamps 
making a complete 20-stamp mill. The 
company is now running the 5-stamp 
mill built by the Little American com- 
pany in Rainy Lake City and excellent 
results have been obtained from its 
operation. The developments this year 
have opened a large body of ore which 
makes certain a very profitable season 
The principal vein in the Foley mine 
at a depth of 100 feet is fifty-nine inches 
in width and enough ore is now in sight 
to run the 20-stamp mill for a full year 
It is likely that reduction works will be 
built on this property by the owners of 
the Cyanide process patent. A lot of 
ore from the Foley mine has been sent 
to Toronto to the Cyanide company for 
treatment, and if it is concentrated 
successfully, as it is believed it will be 
without doubt, works will be located on 
the property for the purpose of intro- 
ducing it in the district, without ex- 
pense to the Foley company. 

Rod A. Demme, of the Foley mining 
company, is interested in numerous 
other properties in the Seine river 
country, and is the owner of about 2000 
acres of land in different parts of the 
gold belt. He will spend all of the 
coming spring and summer in looking 
after his holdings and expects to do a 
gread deal of prospecting and deveior- 
ing. Clinton Markell, of this city, has 
some Interests in common with Mr. 
Demme in the vicinity of Rat Portage. 
The Duluth Jobbers' union is interest- 
ing itself in the proposed telegraph 
line to Mine Center and will encourage 
the enterprise in every ix)ssible way 
Investigation is now being made as to 
the most feasible route for the line, and 
while it has not yet been definitely de- 
cided upon it is probable that it will 
follow the Crane Lake road and connee 
with the Duluth & Iron Range line at 
Tower. A number of Tower gentlemen 
have taken hold of the matter, believ- 
ing that a wire to that point will result 
in a large share of the Mine CenL-r 
business being done in and through 

The Duluth, Missabe & Northern 
Railroad company has been asked to 
fuirish an estimate of the cost of a 
line from Virginia and it is not impos- 
sible that a line will be constructed 
from that point especially if a wagon 
road is built from there to Rainv Lane 
C=ty as is contemplated. It is estimated 
that a telegraph line fran*. Tower to 
Mine Center can l)e built at a cost of 
about $6000 and that i^ will oost to 
n<aintain and op^r.itf? it, from ?250 to 
loOO a month.

Grand Lodge In Annual Ses- 
sion at St. Paul. 

St. Paul, March 24.- The grand lodge 
of the Ancient Order of United Work- 
men opened its annual session yester- 
day morning. The classified assess- 
ment plan is the most important ques- 
tion to be considered. This is favored 
by the supreme lodge, and one of the 
supreme lodge members is in St. Paul 
to champion that side of the question, 
but there are signs that the two fac- 
tions will agree to a compromise, as is 
indicated by the annual report of the 
retiring grand master workman, Fred 
M. Lloyd. 

Mr. Lloyd asks the fraternal consider- 
ation of a plan allowing all members 
in his jurisdiction after July 1, 1897. to 
carry their protection under the present 
level assessment plan, or to change at 
any time to the new plan of classified 
assessments. Thus will be formed two 
classes, and the members of each class 
shall pay death losses occurring in their 
own class only, the maximum number 
of assessments to be paid before relief 
can be had from the supreme lodge be- 
ing the same in each class. This plan 
is designed as a compromise solving 
the serious question at issue, and re- 
taining all the membership without 
strife or bitterness. Mr. Lloyd tells the 
members that It will give the advocates 
of each plan an opportunity to demon- 
strate which plan is the best. 

In his report the retiring grand mas- 
ter workman refers to his being accused 
by his brethren of being negligent of 
duty, of a violation of faith, and of 
continuing to hold his office of grand 
master workman while a member of 
the state legislature. "When I entered 
the legislature," he said. "I wrote the 
grand foreman, stating that it was my 
intention to resign, and asking him 
what he thought of it, and he replied 
advising me not to do so. I have given 
you the best thought and energy of 
which I was capable. I assure you that 


St. Paul's Postmaster Forced 
to Make an Assignment. 

St. Paul, March 24.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— Postmaster Robert A .Smith 
made an assignment to Charles C. Mill- 
er yesterday, for the l>enefit of his 
creditors. Mr. Smith says that his per- 
sonal liabilities are not responsible for 
the assignment, but that it is due en- 
tirely to accommodation indorsements 
for friends. His liabilities on these in- 
dorsements amount to about $55,000. Mr. 
Smith's personal liabilities, outside of 
those as indorser, amount to about 
$100,000. These creditors are secured by 
mortgages on the most valuable prop- 
erty he owns, or by stocks, bonds, etc., 
put up as collateral. There is also a 
contingent liability of $50,000 on his 
stock in the Bank of Minnesota. 

In the property thus mortgaged he 
estimates his equity to be worth from I 
$75,000 to $100,000 if he was allowed to ! 
manage his own affairs. But under I 
foreclosure, which will be forced by the ' 
assignment, he thinks his property will 
not sell for a dollar more than enough 
to pay off the mortgages. The other 
property is all outside real estate that 
has little or no value in the present de- 
pressed condition of the market, so the 
prospects of the indorsement creditors 
getting very much are not very bright. 

Mr. Smith has for years been a w<.'ll 
known Democratic politician and has 
served several times as mayor of St. 
Paul. He was appointed postmaster by 
President Cleveland last fall. 

Within the past year, among the | 
thousands of hearty testimonials to the ' 
wonderful curative powers of Paine'e 

celery compound that have been re- 
ceived by Wells, Richardson & Co.— 
among the thousands of grateful letters 
received from every state and town in 
the country, there have come no loss 
than six hearty endorsements from 
members of the national house of repre- 

All were willing that their experience 
should be published, believing rightly 
that they might thus do good to others. 

In these columns have already been 
published the letters received from Con- 
gressmen Meredith, Bell, Grout and 

Now comes a letter from Congress- 
man Robert Neill of Arkansas, as fol- 

"My home is at Batesville, Ark. Dur- 
ing the spring and summer niv 
eldest daughter, then 17 years of age, 
was in very poor health, suffering from 
general debility, nervous prostration 
and frequent slight fevers. She had the 
best medical attention, but apparently 
with little benefit. In the latter part of 
September last, while still feeble, she 
began the use of Paine's celery com- 
pound, aiid improved in health continu- 
ously, rh three months she had fully 
lecovered, and is now in perfect heallh. 

I am bound to think the remedy is an 
excellent one, and do not hesitate to 
recommend it to the suffering." 
j To pcjstixjne at such a vital time as 
this regulatitvg the nerves and purify- 
ing the blood is a .serious mistake. Mer. 
and women distressed l)y nervous 
I trouliles or the effects of imDure bloou 
cannot afford now to lose a day befon- 
takin.g advantage of Paine's celeiy 

In order to avoid <lisappointmeul, 
accept nothing but Paine's celery com- 
pound. A clerk who tries to sell some- 
thing elstf than what peonle ask for is 
evidently not disinterested. He has an 
eye to profits moie than to the good of 

There can be no substitute for Paine's 
celery comoound. 

This has been shown time and time 
again in where persons, too easily 
led. have carried home something lie- 
sides Paine's celery compcmnd ami 
have failed to get the decided benefit 
they had hoped for. 

The strongest endorsement ever re- 
ceived for this great spring remedy— 
and no remedy ever compared with 
Paine's celery compound in the charac- 
ter and the number of the witnesses to 
its eflicacy— the strongest endorsement 
it ever received did not overestimate or 
exaggerate in the least its unrivalled 
jiowf)- of making )H'o)i|fi \vll.

ment of cooking, sewing and manual 
training. The questions were as to 
whether two sessions could not be held 
daily, half the pupils going in the 
morning and half In the afternoon; also 
as to whether the age limit could not 
be made 5 years instead of 4. This, he 
said, .seemed to have given rise to the 
belief that he and Mr. Hanford were 
seeking to cut off the kindergartens. He 
expressed himself as Heartily in favor 
of the kindergarten system. 

Mr. Hanford was then called upon 
and stirred up quite a sensation for a 
moment. After reminding the people 
that the members of the board owe it 
as a duty to the taxpayers to keep ex- 
penses down, especially in these times, 
remarking that the condition of the 
school finances is very bad. he gave 
the same statement concerning the call 
upon Miss Clark as did Mr. Bowman. 
He said their intentions had certainly 
been misconstrued. He then made (he 
statement that within a day after the 
submissiim of the fjuestittns to Miss 
Clark the report got abroad that h« and 
Dr. Bowman were seeking to abolish 
the kindergartens and he said he was 
prepared to make the statement openly 
and would stand by it that the kinder- 
garten teachers were instructed to elec- 
trify the town concerning the proposed 
abolition of the system. 

As Mr. Hanford made this statement 
there was an excited flutter among the 
kindergartners, looks of Indignation 
were hurled at Mr. Hanford and many 
eyes snapped fire. Miss Clark, how- 
ever, merely contented herself with 
denying any such thing had been done 
by the teachers and Miss Baker cor- 
roborated her statement. 

A. R. Merritt, of the sc-hool board, spoke approving the kindergarten 
work and saying that he would not wish 
to see it interfered with. The audience 
sang "America," which closed the

Two Measures That Have Been 
Favorably Reported. 

St. Paul, March 24.— The committee 
on railroads has reported back to the 
house Mr. Labourn"s bill to amend the 
railway laws. The bill is as follows: 

Section 1. That paragraph "b" of 
section 7, of chapter 10, of the general 
laws of 1887, l)e and the same is hereby 
amended to read as follows: 

Section (7 "b.") Whenever any rail- 
way company doing business in this 
state shall be unable, from any reason- 
able cause, to furnish cars at any rail- 
way station or side track, in accordance 
with the demands made by all ])ersons 
demanding cars at such stations or side 
tracks for the shipment of grain or 
other freight, such cars as are furnished 
shall be divided as equally as may be 
among the applicants until each ship- 
I)er shall have received at least one car. 
when the balance shall ho divided rat- 
ably in proportion tr) the amount of 
daily receipts of grain or other freight 
to each shipper, or to the amount of 
grain or other freight offered at such 
station or side tracks. Provided, that 
when any shippers of grain or other 
freight shall require the use of 
ten or more cars for a period 
of ninety or more days in 
any one year, and the same are not 
promptly furnished him by the said 
railroad company within ten (10) days 
after written notice specifying the num- 
ber of cars and the time for which they 
will be needed; then, and in the event 
of the non-compliance with the re(|uest 
contained in said notice, said shipper 
may furnish his own cars of the stand- 
ard kind used in shipping like freight 
by said railroad company for the period 
named in said notice, and said cars 
shall be hauled by said railroad com- 
pany, in like manner as their own cars 
are hauled, to their place of destina^ 
tion, and returned to said shipper' at 
place of shipment with all reasonabkr 
dispatch. A reasonable wheelage rate 
to be charged therefor, to be fixed by 
said railroad company and shipper upon 
such basis as may l)e agreed upon, or, 
if not agreed upon, then by such rate 
as may be lixed by the railroad and commission of the state of 

The committee on municiiial legisla- 
tion has favoral)ly reported the follow- 
ing bill by Mr. Laybourn to regulate 
the granting of privilege of using the 

Section 1. No city in this state shall 
grant to any corporation, company, in- 
dividual or individuals the right to use 
any street, avenue, alley or public 
ground of said city or any part thereof, 
or construct or use any subway there, 
under or any structure thereon for the 
following purposes: 

Street car transportation by the use 
of any means whatever; lighting ol 
such city by the use of gas, electricity

to such city or any part thereof, or for 
telephone or for any othe^ 
purpose or use peculiar to the corpora, 
tion. company or individual to whom 
such grant may be made, except a.s 
hereinafter provided. 

Sec. 2. Said privilege or franchise

Such resoluii(»n <.r ordinance grant-

Takes Her Land Case Into the 

The controversy over the piece of 
land in Cook counity, between Carrie 
Moss and Richard Dowman. which wa» | 
on in the Tnited States land depart- 
ment for several yvars, and acquired 
considerable fame, has been transferred 
to the I'nited States circuit court. Mis:-. 
Moss, who lost the suit in the contest 
in the interior department, has l>rought 
suit against Richard Dowman in that 
court to get possession of the land. 

The land in contn>versy is the se»i 
of section 22-6.^-4. The land was sev. 
eral times entered ami relin«4uished. un- 
til final.v Robert fl. D'oran relinquish?d 
I it on October 2A. 1890. and Carrie Mos.o. 
1 filed a homestead entry. She was then 
! teaching school at Crand Kapids. Mich. 
I She completed her term, and in .April. 
I 1891. left for th.- land. .According tf. 
I her showing she did not proceed in the 
ordinarily humbii- manner of .going on 
the land. l>uilding a little log cabin and 
enduring great hardshir> while culti- 
, vating it. She alleges that she hired 
! Timothy 1>. Whit<> an<l wife as servants 
i at $.'J0 a month; John H. Hisbee. het 
agent, at ?.")0 a month, and F'red Oagnon 
I as a laborer at $.".0 a month. With thi;» 
party she went on the land, built a $7i)0 
house, moved in a large amount of fur- 
niture, and built store houses, etc 
During her residence, whic h was from 
.\pril 22. 1S91. to June 1. 189i'. j^he claims 
to have spent $1000.

The defense in the Davis case was 
on today. Judge Cant yesterday after- 
noon denying a motion t(» dismiss the 
case. In his address to the jury Mr. 
Keyes stated that the defense would 
prove that there were other items be- 
sides labor which went to make up 
the bill put in. but which, for reasons 
which would be developed, all were put 
into the bill as labor. 

This morning Mr. Davis, the defend- 
ant, was placed on the stand and told 
his side of the story. .After telling of 
his experiences as a civil engineer and 
his election as count.v surveyor, he be- 
gan with the matter of the sub-divi- 
sion of section 17. on account of the 
bill for wliich he is being tried. 

He stated that when he took hold 
foh I of the oHice he did not receive a large 
part of the records from his predeces- 
sor, and the books were very inade- 
(luale. On the advice of County 
Attorney Arbury and the county 
board, he secured four record books, 
which were furnished by the board. 
The first petitions for the sub-division 
of sections came in in May, 1S95. Au- 
flitor Halden beli. ved the law uncon- 
stitutional, and the board directed Ar- 
bury to report on it. Roth he and .At- 
torney C.eneral Childs decided that it 
was unconstitutional, and at the Aug- 
ust meeting of the board two l»ills for 
the woi'k Were presente«l. 

He admitted that Witness Coe'.s tes- 
timony as to his time and that of his 
men c<insumed in section 17 was cor- 
rect, substantially, though there might 
bt' a ilay's discrepancy as to rejiorting 
Coe's notes. He was asked what other 
items of expense were entered into the [ 
sub-division of the section, and the i 
'iia-stion was objtnted to l>y Mr. Raid-: 
w in, who said that the onl.v issue w as i 
whether the items in the bill were cor- j 
rtfct. It had been pioved that they were | 
not, and it made no difference about 
the other expenses. Mr. Baldwin .said i 
that if this was allowed it would 
open the door to more fraud than 
would ever be corrected, and these \ 
j)ro.secutions would do more harm than I

Judge Cant said that it was danger- 
ous to allow nun to put in bills for 
one thing and when (luestioned .allow 
them to prove others, but as liearing 
on the (luestion of interest he allowed 
the testimony. He reserved the ri.ght 
to reject part of the items offered, but 
later be allowed them all, stating that 
he would charge the jury as to his 
right to charge for these other items 
and leave to the jury the ciuestion of 

Mr. Davis then pro« eeded to explain 
away the dis«reiian<y betwi'eii the bill 
put in, *14s for time, and the amount 
of time put in, $l>0. At noon the items 
he had put in amounted, including ilie 
' $tIO. lo $l.'i2.7.'>. more than *the amount of 
] the l>ill. But he stated that he gave tie- 
I men .$l..")t) i>er day instead of $2. and 
] paid their board, and this brought the 
' whole amount d«)wn to J143.7r). The 
items were as follows: Dray for moiui- 
i ments, $2; freight for same. $4.9.5: gel- ! 
j ling notes from the land office, »>ne day, I 
,14: putting three m<muments in at an 
i earlier date, $4: apportioning the costs, ' 
i$4; board for the men ?r».,SO; extra time, ' 
I two days for two men ^ho were left on | 
the ground. $8: indexing the records, 

Mr. Davis testified in relation to the 
latter item that it was found necessary 
lo index the books and it was decided 
that as someone must pay for this and 
as the books would be needed for sec- 
tion 17. it would be as well to tax the 
costs in with the sub-division of sec- 
lions, and twenty days' work at $2.,S5 
per day were taxed against section 17. 
The section was owned by the St. Paul 
& Duluth and the Duluth. Missabe & 
Northern railroads, and as these roads 
got the sub-division done cheaper by 
taking advantage of this law, and as 
they were pretty lucky in escaping tax- 
ation, it was thought that it would be 
all right to tax the cost of this index- 
ing against them. 

Witness stated that he did not charge , 
a dollar that he did not believe he was ' 
entitled to, that he did not intend to 1 
defraud the county, and that he lost ' 
money on what v> as allowed on this I 
bill. He stated that the bill was made ] 
in the form it was in, lumped as j 
■'time," because the county auditor re- ( 
i|Uested it. The olijeet was to keep ia.\- | 
payers from 'kicking" .ind making i 
trouble, as (hey might if ihey saw an 1 
itemix.ed bill. The law did ii«d Spe- 
cilically allow these otinrr expenses, :iiid i 
il did allow 'time.' so il was jiidgeil | 
b«-tter to keep within the spirit of th'-l 
law. ;

Withdraws From Freight and 
Passenger Pools. 

Chicago. .Maich 24.— As a further re- 
sult of the United States supreme court 
decision in the Trans-Mi.ssouri Freight 
association case, the entire Burlington 
system to<lay gave formal notice of 
withdrawal from both the Western 
Freight associations and the Western 
Passenger association. Notice of with- 
drawal from all the subordinate bu- 
reaus of those two associations was 
also given. It was regarded as almost 
certain that this action on the part of 
the Burlington road, coming after the 
withdrawal of the Santa Fe system 
be followed at once by nearly all the 
Western roads. 

The Hoek Islan«l and Milwaukee & St. 
Paul roads are expected to withdraw br- 
lore night. This of means the dis- 
ruption of the a.ssociatlons, but, will not 
necessarily re.-^ult in a demoralization of 
rates. In fact, the Burlington has ap- 
pointed Chairman Caldwell of the West- 
ern Pa.ssenger a.ssocialion to handle lis 
mileage tickets and to i.ssue clergymen's 
permits, wliieh is reg.;r<led .is a first st^^ 
towards a reorganization of the Wesiera 
Passenger as.sociatiou. although neee.s. 
sarily on different lines.

The ,Waterv5iet arsenal, near Troy, 
has begun work ijreliminary to tin 
casting (jf the largest gun in the United 
.'States. It is to be a 16-inch bore, savs 
the Boston Globe. The United States 
has built tv,-o of the larger caliber for 
coast defenses, but they were old-fash- 
ioned smooth-bores, and not tf> be c<mi- 
pared to the new gun in size, weight ei- 
anything excei>t caliber-. There are t\so 
2ti-incli guns, one of which is mounted 
at Fort Hamilton, and one of which lie;j 
on the ordnanie dock at G<ivernor's 
island. These .guns were not startlii:,g 
successes. The one at Fort Hamilton 
has l>een fired a few times, and each 
time its recoil has raised the very dick- 
ens with its carriage. 

The new gun will be nearly fifty feet 
long (to l>e accurate, 411.67 feet), will 
have a range of sixteen miles aiul will 
be able to penetrate 27V2 inches of the 
best steel armor at a distance of two 
miles. The -gun will weigh 12,'j tons and 
it will throw a stdid armor-piercing 
piojectile weighing 2370 pounds. When 
tlie projectile leaves the muzzle of the 
gun it will be traveling at the rate of 
2(»00 feet a second, and if a plate of har- 
veyized steel thirty-three inches in 
thickness was placed near the muzzle 
of the gun it would be penetrated bv 
the flying mass of the projectile. 

This gun, mounted at Fort Wads- 
worth, ^\ould be able to hiirl a 2;J70- 
pound projectile upon a hostile man-of 
war before she got within seven miles 
of Sandy Hook. En.gland has in hei 
coast defenses and her navy sixteen 
guns of 16-inch caliber and France hat; 
eight. Italy has twenty-five guns of 
17-inch caliber. The new gun, work 
upon which as now begun at Water- 
! vliet, will l)e superior in, 
I however, to the Italian guns, although 
j they do have <me inch more of caliber. 
The maximum diameter of the breech 
I of the new gun will be sixty-two inches. 
I The diameter of the breech opening is 
I twenty inches. To fire this gun will re- 
; quire a charge of 1066 pounds of powder,

Plain and Easy Way or Manu- 
facturing the Common 
Lead Pipe. 

Squeezed Out By Heavy But 

Extremely Simple iron 


Presses Are About tlie Same 
as Tiiose Used a Cen- 
tury Ago. 



Lead pipe Is made l>y 
powerful presses, whose 
operation is extremely simple. Before 
the invention of the lead pipe press the 
pipe was made in various ways. Lead 
was oast on a bar in lengths of a foot 
or two. which was then rolled out l)e- 
tween grrooved rollers into len^rths of 
about ten feet, such lengths beins then 
soldered together to make a still longer 
pipe, says the New York Sun. By an- 
other method sheet lead was cut off in 
lengths, rolled up and soldered at the 
joint to form a pipe. By still another 
method lead pipe was drawn, in some- 
thing the same manner that wire is 
drawn now. All these methods, requir- 
ing much more labor, were much more 
• ostly than the present way. The lead 
pipe press is not new— the first one used 
this country was brought from Scot- 
about seventy-five years ago. The 
used are the same in prin- 
used then, varying only 
in the manner of apply- 

ly, it issues forth in the form of pipe; 
coudn't do anything else. 

Fresh lead pipe has almost the frosty 

glisten of .silver. As it comes from the 

pres.s it is led away in an inclined 

wooden troiigh to ))e reeled up on 

drums, in the coils In which lead pipe 

fs so commonly .seen, or it may oe 

sawed off in lengths for other uses or 

to order. The men who handle the hot 

pipe cany thick felt pads which ser\e 

I as gloves, and are active while the 

j press is in operation, for the pipes keep 

j coming steadily. 

In the top delivery press the lead 
ram. or plunger, remain fi.xed, and the 
lead cylinder rises, just as in the bot- 
tom delivery press: but the die and the 
core are exactly reversed In situation. 
The die is placed in the lower end of 
the lead ram. and the lower end of the 
core, the head, as it is called, is set in 
the bottom of the cylinder; the head 
fits into a place made for it there, and 
is centered and held in place by set 
.s« lews. The core rises up in the cin- 
j ter of the cylinder and Just higher than 
Its upper edge. The l>ottom of the 
cylinder is do.sed. There is an opening 
up through the lead ram. When in 
operating the press tlie lead cylind.r 
and the lead ram arc brought ti>ff.^f!i -i 
the core goes up through the die. T;u- 
I cttom of the cylinder being ■■! •«..(■. ilu- 
lead is of course crowded out through 
the opening in the die at Ine top. In 
the und<"'r delivery press the core is 
held suspended in the die; here the 
core moves up through the die. wi'.'i

base is .set. but it is <ff course always 
at the same distance from the die. all 
around and the lead, formed into pipe, 
is crowde<l up all around it.

OME years a<(o Mr. Chas. 
Bigelow. now one of the 
proprietors of the famous 
Kickapoo Indian Remedies, 
was actincj as a govern- 
ment scout in the Indian 
territory. He was known 
at that' time as •' Texas 
Charlie." and while on one 
of his expedition!; was taken sick Mith 
a severe fever, and for a few davs Jay 
at death's door. During his sickness he 
was cared for 
by an Indian 
Chief and his 
family, in 
whose 'lod«j;e 
he la y, s o 
weak that he 
could hardly 
raise his eye- 
lids. An In- 
dian doctor 

bends the rising pipe over so that it 
lies in the gnH)ve of a wooden wheel 
.-et upright over the press: after it is 
well started its own weight is sufficieiU 
to keep it on the wheel, and it is led 
thence to drums. The top delivery 
press works with about ."> per cent less 
power and is more convenient in oper- 

Lead pipe is made in many standard 
sizes, varying in caliber from one- 
eighth of an inch up to six inches, and 
.^ach of these different sizes is made in 
pipe of different degrees of thickness. 



presses now 
ciple as those 
in details and 

ing the power. Briefly stated, a piston 

working in a cylinder which has been 

previously filled with molten lead forces 

the lead through an opening, in the 

center of which a core is held. In some 

early machines the cylinder was fixed 

and the piston moved down into it. but 

in most presses the piston, or plunger. 

or lead ram. as it is called, is held fixed. 

and it is the cylinder that is made to 

move. In some presses the die, or i»pen- 

jng through which thf> lead is forced 

to form the pipe, is in the bottom of the 

cylinder; the pipe comes out at the 

bottom of the press. In other presses 

the die is placed in the lead ram. or 

plunger, and th«' pipe comes out at the 

top of the press. The top delivery 

press is now the one more commonly 


The lead cylinder of a pres-s employed 
in making i>ipe of the sizes nio^t cuin- 
nionly used would be perhaps eighteen 
inches in height and eighteen inches in 
outside diameter, and it would have a 
lw»re six or eight inches in diameter: 
tho cylinder is made of steel. It has a 
»:teani jacket by means of which it is 
hea,ltsl l)efore work is begun: after that 
the molten metal poured into it keeps 
it hot. The cylinder is secured firmly 
to a massive table, which rests upon 
the tapper end of the piston of a hy- 
draulic press. 

In an under delivery lead press the 
die is placed at the bottom of the cylin- 
der. The opening then is reduced by 
the adjustment of a number of attach- 
ments designed for the purp>ose. and. 
finally, in the center is placed the die of 
whatever size it may be desired to us,'. 
When pressure is applied the lead in 
the cylinder is forced out through this 
die. It fills the opening. whate\ er it ' 
may l>e: so that the outside diameter , 
of the pipe is the same as the inside ; 
diameter of the die; the die forms the j 
outer surface of the pipe. 

Aljove the lead cylinder, and concen- 
tric with it. is suspended, in a fixed po- 
sition, the lead ram. a steel piston- 
like cylinder which just fits into the 
bore in the lead cylinder. When the 
press is not in operation, and the cylin- 
der is lowered, there is clear space be- 
tween the lower end of the lead ram 
and the upper edge of the lead chamber 
in the top of the lead cylinder. Ris- 
ing from either side of the lead cylin- | 
der is a steel rod: these two rods, rising 
opposite each other and parallel, run ' 
through and above the frame of thf ! 
press; above the frame the tw«. rods 
are united by a crosshead. To the j 
crosshead is attached a long. hoIU)w ; 
steel rod called the core holder. Tht 
core holder goes down through the in- 
terior of the lead pipe cylinder to a 
point just above the opening in the die. 
The lead ram. when the press Is in 
operation, works like a piston in the 
lead cylinder: the core holder works I 
like a piston through the lead ram. In 
the lower end of the core holder a 
thread is cut, and into this thread is 
screwed the core, projecting down 
within the die. The core is to form the 
interior surface of the lead pipe, and 
the space between the surface of the 
core and the interior f»f the die deter- 
mine the thickness of the walls of the 

Adjacent to thv pr^ss is a lead fui- 
nace. When the press is ready and 
the die and core are in place the cylin- 
der is filled with molten lead, run from 
the furnace. The hydraulic- machinery 
is set in operation and the table bear- 
ing thf lead (Cylinder is lifted slowly. 
with trem*>ndous power. With tlie 
cylinder, of course, rise the two bars 
that run up through the frame of the 
machine, and are joined above by the 
crosshead. and the crosshead carries 
with it, of course, the core holder; in 
fact, these are all immovable parts of 
one whole, so that, though the cylinder 
is in motion, the core, carried by the 
core holder, is always in the same posi- 
tion relative to the die. The cylinder is 
raised until the plunger or lead ram 
enters it and is brought into contact 
with the lead at some pressure. Th" j 
press is then stopped for a brief time, 
a minute or two. The lead works bet- I 
ter for the very slight cooling, and the { 
pressure makes the mass more uni- | 
form. Then the press is set in operi- 
tion again. The cooling pressure had | 
been of atK»ut 200 tons; the working 
pressure in making pipe is up to 400, 
possibly up to 500 tons. The pressure 
is tremendous and continuous; if there 
is an opening in the cylinder anywhere 
the lead must go under that pressure. 
It cannot escape at the top. for the up- 
per end of the lead cylinder is occupied 
entirely by the lead ram; but there is ; 
an openitig at the bottom of the cylin- ' 
der. the angular space between the core j 
and the die. and the lead is forced out ' 
through that. If It were a V-shaped i 
opening or an M-shaped, or whatever 
it might be. the preso would for<:e it I 
out in a continuous bar of that shape, 
for, while it remains, very hot for a 
time after it leaves the press, it be-

' Upon 
I section 

j To the President and Common Coun- 



As gas has been supplied to tens oi 
thousands of consumers in London by 
means of penny-in-the-slot machines, 
it is nenv propo.sed to provide the elec-- 
trlc lighting by similar apparatus, .says 
a foreign exchange. Several meters 
have already been devised to which 
penny-in-the-slot machinery is at- 
tac-hed. and .some of these have been 
introduc-ed into the St. Pancras dis- 
trict, among other places. Indeed, syn- 
dicates and companies have b.-en 
formed with the object of introducinj; 
the c»f such machines on a large 
scale. The promoters of enter- 
prises, in .semie instances as subcontrac- 
tors with electric-lighting corporation.s. 
bind themselves to use a certain quan- 
tity of electric units at so much per 
round figure. They in consideration 
therefor put up meters and fittings in 
the c-onsumer.s' premises free of cost 
and repay themselves by a little addeci 
charge on consumption through 
peyny-in-the-slot machines. 

One of these London companies un- 
dertakes to supply the electric light t< 
an eight-candle power incandescent 
lamp tor six hours on a pennv being 
dropped into the box. Nay. nie"»re, the 
consumer may switch off or on his 
light, just as it is recjuired. for if it it» 
not burnin.g the meter dexs not registei 
against him. He could, for instance, 
burn it an hour a day for six consecu- 
tive days, until he had his full penny's 
worth of electricity. Varieties of these 
machines are so made that they can be 
fe'd with thirty-six penniv-s dropped ii. 
one after another, with the result thai 
the meter will work on until the value 
of that amount has been recorded a^ ' 
usual. Of course th.^ consumer can re i 
l»eat the putting a pwnny in the slol ' 
process just as often as he wishes to 
secure an addition or a continuous 

The argument in favor of the intro- 
duction of these machine's is that elec- 
tricity may be brought within the reach 
of everybody, and that, commercially, 
they are the right thing, as there car 
be no bad debts from uncollected bills, 
and the trifling extra expense to the 
con.sumer is not felt, as the mode of 
paying best suits his pocket. It is esti- 
mated that there are nearly 100.000 gas 
meters in use in the metropolis, and the 
argument is that cheap electricity 
ought to become still more populai 
among the mases. 

To the President and Common Council: 
Your committee on auditing and 
finance, to whom was referred the re- 
port of the city treasurer, having con-

The Thought 
flakes Business 

Is a knowledge 
Of the Store. 

It's a big subject— so big that the 
news of it must be told daily. It's too 
much to expect that people generally 
without suggestion will make it a 
subject of special study. 

Growth of the business is merely 
a question of how far we can impart 
this knowledge. When the whole 
community really knows this store, 

.|- much of our advertising will be unnecessary. The more the business is 

X opened to the light, the more rapid its growth.

Or E. P. ALEXANDER, Agent, Room 400. 

N. J. Miller returned yesterday from 
Tower where he has been perfecting- ar- 
langements for the organization of a 
transportation company to carry 
freight and passengers between Tower 
and Kainy Lake and Seine river points. 
A charter is now in course of prepara- 
tion which will be filed with the regis- 
ter <»f deeds in a few days. The capital 
stock will probably be $10,000 and 
among the incorporators are A. O. 
Kingston. M. F. Marion. Albert Kitto 
and M. Bernard, of Tower: N. J. Miller, 
of Duluth. and several others. Boats 
have been secured for Vermilion. Crane 
and Rainy lakes, and a stage and 
freight line will be operated over the 
portage between Vermilion and Crane 
lakes. At Kettle Falls derricks will be 
put in t<) raise freight for transporta- 
tion over the falls and a tram road- 
way built to transfer over the short 
portage from one l>oat to the other. 

It is proposed to make a trip from 
Duluth to Seine river points in about 
forty hours, and the fare will be only 
19.50, which is much than half the 
rate by way of port Arthur. Rat Port- 
age and Fort Francis. As soon as the 
road between the Vermilion and Crane 
lake is improved as now <ontemplated 
by the county commissioners the new 
company expects to be able to make the 
trip across this portage for passengers t 
in four hours. Light spring wagons 
with accommodations for about six ' 
j passengers each will be used. The boats ' 
I on the proposed line will each have a i 
I carrying capacity of about seventy 
I passengers in addition to freight. 

The greatest obstacle In the wav of 
the enterprise is the failure of the Can- ; 
adlan government to establish a cus- 
tom office and port of entrv at Seine ' 
City, for without this it will not be i 
practicable for American boats to run 
between Kettle Falls and Seine river 
points, including Mine Center. With- 
out a custom house there it would be 
necessary to go to Fort Francis for 
clearance papers and pain admission 
for dutiai>le American goods, and an 
extensive trade with Duluth and Tower 
would be carried on with much diffi- 
culty. Business men at Rat Portage 
and Fort Francis, and Canadian steam- 
boat men on Rainy lake oppose making 
Seine City a port of entry liecause they 
realize that it would divert a large por- 
tion of the business of that section to 
the American side. The matter has 
been referred to Page Morris, who has 
been requested to interest the treasury 
department In Washington in it. that 
the Canadian government mav be of- 
ficially requested to establish a custom at Seine City for the accommoda- 
tion of American exporters. The job- 
bers- union, of this city, has also shown 
< oncern ai)out it and will use its influ- 
.nce to open this important gateway 
t"r Duluth business men.

Monroe Nichols Receives Word 
From Senator Davis. 

The^ special dispatch from The Her- 
ald's Washington correspondent yester- 
day, stating that President McKlnlev 
has promised the Hawaiian consul 
generalship to a California man. was 
confirmed this morning by the receipt 
by Monroe Nichol.s of a telegram from 
Senator Davis. The senator nierelv 
stated that anothtr had been promised 
the consulship. Ii is believed that the 
shipping interests at San Francisco, in- 
cluding the poweifiil Spreckles influ- 
ence, landed the < onsulship for a Cali- 
fomian. Mr. Nichols had splendid en- 
dorsements, lieing supported by all the 
Minnesota senators and representatives 
and many prominent Republicans in 
Ohio and other Western states, and 
endorsed by nearly all the New Eng- 
land senators. It was a flattering en- 
dorsement of which any man might 
justly feel proud.

Some Bribery Charges Are, 
Being Set Afloat. 

Louisville, Ky., March 25.— A special 
to the Evening Post from Frankfort, 
says: The third ballot for United 
States senator to succeed J. c. Black- 
l>urn was taken today by the Kentucky 
legislature. Before the two houses met 
in joint session it was stated that Gov- 
ernor Bradley would receive forty-five 
Democratic and twenty-four Republi- 
can votes. Rumors of bribery have 
been afloat all day and it was said at 
11 o'clock that the Hunter forces had 
brought back two of the Republican 
bolters into line and that Hunter, the 
nominee, would certainly win. 

It was also said that the sound money 
Democrats would vote for the Hunter 
forces to make a continuous session 
today and vote till sundown or till 
.some candidate was elected. 

The Republican state central commit- 
tee is in session today awaiting news 
from the senatorial fight. Tho com- 
mittee is strongly for Hunter, and it is 
understood that the lomniittee will 
turn its attention t) Oo'-- rnor Bradley 
if he does not withdraw liis opposition 
to the caucus nominee, IT w. G. Hun:- 

Xo attempt was made to make tha 
session continuous, and without furthei 
remarks the joint session adjourned. It 
is understood that the state central 
committee will now tak ■ a hand in the 
fight, and will endeavor to whip tht 
Bradley bolters into line. But this- 
seems improbable now, but the predic-> 
tion is freely made that if a senator is 
elected to succeed Blackburn it will be 
given W. O. Bradley and not W. G. 

During the voting Representative 
Nance (bolting Republican) arose and 
hotly denied that he had l)een bought, 
bribed or monkeyed with. He concluded 
by voting for the Repul)lican nominee. 
Dr. Hunter, who, however, could not 
win, receiving only 67 votes, 69 being 
necessaray to a choicf. Blackburn, 
silver Democrat, received 49, whilt

Turks Retreat Under Cover

Rich Convoy of Provisions

Canea. March 25.— (Copyright, 1897, by 
the Associated Press.)— The insurgents 
made a determined attack upon the 
block house, or fort, at Malaxa, outside 
of Suda, today. During the night the in- 
surgent forces were pushed forward 
until they occupied convenient posi- 
tions for attack, and about 6 a. m. the 
artillery opened fire upon the Turkish 
block house. The pieces of the Chris- 
tians were served with such admiraljl- 
promptness and precision that in a 
short time nothing remained to the 
Turks but extermination or evacuation. 
The Mussulmans, preferring the latter, 
commenced a retreat 
upon the Turkish war- 
to save them from the

The Senate Passes the Insane 
Asylum Bill. 

St. Paul, March 25. — The senate today 
passed the bill locating the fourth hos- 
pital for the In.sane at Hastings by a 
vote of 38 to 15. Senators Dunham, 
Culkin and Howard filed a written 
protest which they had entered upon 
the journal after a lively tilt with some 
other senators who considered the pro- 
test out of place on the journal and the 
language used an insult to the sen- 

Senator Dunham j)rotested that the 
idea of offering an insult to the senate 
never occurred to him. or to those who 
had signed the protest with him, and 
that he did not think the language of 
the protest should be so construed. 
The l>ill for the f)rgani ation of new 

j c«)unties was on the senate calendar. 
Senator Whitney, the author of the 
bill, made an eIof)uent plea for the bill, 
but the oppositi<m was too strong, and 
the bill was defeated by a vote of 21 
to 30. Senator Whitney changed his

Kansas City, March 25.— Weather Ob- 
server Connor gives it as his opinion 
that the Missouri river at this point wUl 
have reached its height for the present 
at 9 o'clock tonight, and will then bt-gin 
to recede. The gauge at Kansas City at 
noon today was 19.2, just one foot higher 
than yesterda>l At Leavenworth, 

Kan., the river began falling last night 
and at noon today the stage was a frac- 
tion under 36. At the same time yester- 
day it was 46.6. All danger for the pres- 
ent is believed to have been passed. 

Washington, March 2.5.— The meeting 
of the board of managers of the na- 
tional home for disabled volunteer 
soldiers adjourned today. The only 
matter discussed at the morning ses- 
sion was the question of the reor- 
.ganization of the management of the 
home at Leavenworth, Kans. No con- 
clusion was reached and the whole 
matter went over until the next meet- 
ing of the board, which will take place 
in about a month, either ate the home 
at Dayton, Ohio, or at Danville, III. 
The indications are that there will be 
more or less complete reorganization 
of the Leavenworth management. 

Beaver, Pa., March 25.— Fire at 7 
o'clock this morning completely de. 
stroyed the Buchanan building, a three 
story structure, occupied by the post- 
office. Star Publishing company, W''est. 
em Union Telegraph company, a dry 
goods store and a number of lawyers 
and dentists. Loss, $.50,000, fully in^ 
sured. The fire was caused l>y the ex. 
plosion of an oil stove. No one was In- 

fleet opened a badly- 
judged fire uix»n the insurgents in order 
to cover the retreat from the block 
house. The shells fell either short or 
far beyond the insurgent forces. Con- 
sequently the Christians pushed for- 
ward steadily, pressing hard upon the 
rear of the Turks and keeping up a 
continual skirmish fire. The Turks 
made a stand now and then, pouring a 
few volleys in the direction of the in- 
surgent skirmish lines. The insurgents 
succeeeded in pushing on as far as the 
village of Tsikalaria, where they set 
fire to some houses. 

While this fighting was in progress a 
detachment of Turkish troops, being 
unaware of the fact that the garrison 
of the fort at Malaxa had evacuated 
that place and was retreating upon 
Suda, closely pursued by the Christians, 
made a sortie from Canea with a con- 
voy of provisions intended for the gar- 
rison of Malaxa. From the route fol- 
lowed by the Turks nothing could be 
seen of the fl'ghting in progress between 
Malaxa and Suda. The Ottoman troop.s 
advanced half way un to the heights 
uiion which the block house of Koratidi 
is situated. 

But while the Turks were unaware of 
the insurgents' doing.s, tvic latter had 
closely followed the movements of ih' 
Turkish column escorting the provisiuu 
and ammunition train. Near Keratidi 
the Turks were met by a body of insur- 
gents, who, fmm well-selected positions, 
opened a fierce fire upon tlie advancing 
troops. The fire of the Christians 
stopped the advance of the column, ar.d 
the Turkish commander took un the 
best position possible in order to protect 
the convoy and send it to the rear if 
necessary. At noon, as this dispatch , 
is .sent, the fighting between the Turks I 
and Christians near Keratidi was still 
in progress and the hesult was uncer- 

The Turkish garrison at Malaxa lost 
heavily during the retreat from that 
place. The insurgents are numerous 
and occupy all the heights in the vicin- 
ity of Canea as far as Perivoli. having I 
captured the two last Turkish fort- ' 
resses. Only the fieets of the powers 
prevent the entire success of the insur- 
gent cause. Politically there is no 
no change in the situation. The Cretan 
chiefs have definitely decided to rcfusi 
autonomy and will continue the strug- 
gle until the union of the island with 
Greece is an acknowledge*! fact. 

The blockade is in progress all along 
the Cretan <oast, but this has not pre- 
vented several small Greek vessels from 
landing ammunition and provisions. 
The Greek vessel which was accident- 
ally captured i)y Austrian gunboats 
which put into a harbor owing to the 
severity of the weather had on board 
sixty volunteers and a quantity of 

At 6:30 p. m. the Christians still (x- 
cupy the fort at Malaxa. from which 
they drove the Turks l)y bombardment 
this morning, in spite of the shells 
which fell around it, which set fire to 
the Vjlock house. 

At 3:15 p. m., this afternoon, wh»e 
the Turkish reinforcements were 
vainly struggling to capture the 
heights above Nerakourou, the 

Christians from Akrotiei attacked the 
Turkish cordon at Halepa, which was 
keeping them at a distance with moun- 
tain artillery. The fighting continues 
as this dispatch is being forwarded, 
the shots of the insurgents reaching 
Mortevardia and Halepa. 

Fighting continued between the 
Turks and the Christians until 3:15 this 
afternoon in and about Tsikalaria, not 
far from Suda, to which point the in- 
surgents succeeded in pushing forward 
this morning while in pursuit of the 
retreating garrison of Malaxa. The 
insurgents burned several more houses 
of Tsikalaria, whereupon the warships 
of the foreign i)owers, at 3:15 p. m., 
began firing at the Christians. The 
bombardment, however, lasted only 
ten minutes. 


Last Day of Discussion of 
. Dingley Bill. 

Washington, March 25.— This was 
the last day of the general debate of 
the tariff bill in the house. Mr. Tal- 
bert, in the presence of a very scant 
audience both on the floor and in the 
ilalleries, opened the debate. The 
house, however, rapidly filled. Mr. 
Tall)ert talked a great deal about the 
robber barons. 

Champ Clark, who followed him, 
said as a Democratic politician he re- 
joiced in the passage of the pending 
bill, because after it had become a law 
every storekeeper would be obliged to 
make a Democratic speech every time, 
he made a sale. The passage of this' 
bill, he said, would give the Democrats' 
1400 majority in the next congress 

Mr. Maguire, Mr. Gunn. Mr. Tawney 
the latter a member of the ways and 
means committee, each took the floor 
for twenty minutes, Mr. Tawney de- 
fended the lead schedule, which had 
been attacked by Mr. Gunn. The lat- 
ter said he had no criticism to make of 
the rates. He only asked that they be 
collected. He said he was himself a 
farmer. Who farmed the farms, if not 
the farmer? If the Republicans had 
desired to do something practical for 
the farmers why, he asked, had they 
left hides on the free list? Mr. Simp- 
son, announced himself a free trader 

Mr. Tawney asserted that the classi- 
fication on the schedule was such that 
the duties could not be evaded. The 
purpose of the framers of the schedule 
was to give American labor employ- 
ment in the smelting of Mexican and 
Canadian ores and at the same tiuT^ 
fully protect the American lead miner 
Mr. Tawney sketched the attitude of 
the two parties on the subject of the 
tariff, to show how steadfastly the Re- 
publicans had clung to protection, and 
how the Democrats had backed and 
filled in their national platforms. 

Mr. Simpson entertained the house 
for five minutes. He read from Mr 
McKinley's speech at the Minneapolis 
convention, the declaration that tlie 
foreigner paid the tax. This statement, 
he said, was ridiculous. The last con-^ 
gress, he proceeded to say, had in- 
creased appropriations $50,000,000, and 
now according to Mr. McKinley's the- 
ory, the taxes on the foreigners were to 
be increased to pay for the extrava- 
gance. The foreigner should be glad, he 
said, that the last congress had not 
been a $2,000,000,000 congress. If the 
taxes on the foreigner could be suffi- 
ciently increased, he observed, sarcas- 
tically, the surplus could be distriljuted 
among our people and every day would 
be Sunday over here. (Laughter.)

Washington, March 25.— The senate 
today after a brief discussion re- 
ferred the amended credentials of John 
A. Henderson, of Florida, appointed to 
succeed ex-Senator Call to the com- 
mittee on privileges and elections, and 
then went into executive session on 
the arliitration treaty. 

The senate took up the arbitration 
treaty immediately after going into 
executive session today. The Chilton 
amendment was still the immediate 
subject of discussion and Senator Chil- 
ton, the author of the amendment, was 
the first senator of the day to speak at 
length upon it. He urged the change 
as necessary to i)rotect the American 
inteiesis and said ihey were not safe

An Acting Manager Steals 
$40,000 and Skips. 

New York, March 24.— Anton Christ- 
ensen, of Michigan, Avas arrested here 
today, charged with having swindled 
the Ridgeway (Michigan) Creamery 
company out of $40,000. The arrest was 
made on a request from Michigan. It 
is alleged that Christensen, while act- 
ing manager of the creamery companv, 
appropriated the funds. His scheme is 
said to have been to take to himself 
from 2 to 3 cents a pound on every 
pound of butter sent out by the cream- _ 
ery. When arrested he was negVDtiating = 
for the disposal of forty kegs of butter, i = 
which he had consigned to himself in ' ~ 
this city. 

He admitted that he was ihe man 
that they were after, l)ut denied his 
stealings amounted to anything like 
the amount claimed. When searched 
he was found to have a revolver, a gold 
watch, $1387 in money, a bank book of 
the Lilley State bank of Tecumseh, 
Mich., and two checks on the Irving 
National bank of this city, signed by 
Breakstone brothers, of New York, for 
$278. The prisoner said that when he 
found he was liable to be discovered 
for his thefts, he decided to get to- 
gether what mon<?y he could and go to 
L'l nmark. 1

Washington, March 25. — Alexander 
M. Kennedy, secretary of the National 
Association of the Veterans of the 
Mexican War, and editor of the Ve- 
dette, died here today aged 73 years, 
after an illness of nearly four years. 
He was well known to nearly all the 
veterans of the Mexican war. He was 
born in Wheeling, W. Va., in 1824, and 
was of Irish extraction. His father 
was a captain of a steam ijoat on 
Mexican and Southern rivers for ten 
years and the son, after a brief ex- 
perience in the composing room of the 
St. Louis Republican, served several 
years on his father's boat. He early 
enlisted in the Mexican war and 
served through it with credit as a ser- 
geant. Later the gold excitement drew 
him to California, where he spent sev- 
eral yeai's prospecting and in the 
I)rinting business. 

In 1861 he married Miss Mary L. 
Canniflf, of New York city. They had 
five children, none of whom survive. 
In 1869 he came to Washington for the 
Mexican Veterans as.sociation and had 
remained here ever since attending to 
the business of the organization and 
editing The Vedette.

Death's face is not a pleasant th\n<: to 
look upon, yet thousands of men and wo- 
men go about dailv with the reflection of 
death in their faces. The dull eyes, the 
sallow complexion, the sunken cheeks, the 
emacintrd form, all tell the story of the in- 
sidious advances of that implacable foe- 
consumption. Doctors have declared that 
consumption is incurable. It is not. Thou- 
.sands of consumptives have testified to 
their complete recoverv afler they were 
Riven up by the doctors' and all hope was 
ijone. It is simply a matter of Roing to the 
seat of the trouble which is imperfect 
and improper nutrition. 

Dr. Pierce's C.olden Medical Discovery 
does this. It corrects all disorders of the 
digestion. It invigorates the liver. It 
makes assimilation perfect. It fills the

Governor Called a Demagogue 
' in the Senate. 

Lansing, ilich.. March 2:..— There was 
I an unusual scene in the senate of the 
Michigan lejrislaturo when the jjover- 
nor of tliM state was denounced as a 
demaKogue. The discussion was over 
the bill of Senator C'ovel requiring th<' 
governor to make appointments during 
the session of the legislature so that 
they may be acted upon by the senate 
Senator C. W. Moore, of Detroit, moved 
to strike ciut all after the enacting ' 
clause, denouncing the bill as an insult i 
to the governor. ■ 

Senator Covel stated that the bill 
simply rc'iuired the governor to do 
what the franu'is of the constilion 
plainly cuntemidated lie would do when 
it was provided that all appointments 
of the governor should be approved bv '■ 
the senate. He stated that there wer-- ' 
not over forty appointments which ' 
ought to be made by the governor, but 
that he was evidently holding them up > 
until aftt'r the legislature should ad- 
journ. He charged (Stivernor Pingii- 
with desiring to appoint Professor 
Bemis. of Chicago, labor commissiun- 
er. but was afraid to do so until af ti r 
tr',the legislative adjournment when the 

I ■ 

St. Paul. March 2"..— (Special to The 
Heijild.)— The legislative reapportion- 
ment committee has finally agreed on a 
report. That was the meager informa- 
tion furnished the reportcM's last even- 
ing at the conclusion of an all day ses- 
i sion of the committee. It is under- 
stood, however, that the sub-committee 
has drafted a plan for reapportionment 
that will add five new districts to the 
legislative election districts * of the 
state, making the total number fifty- 
nine, instead of fifty-four. 

The general ]dan of reapportionment 
it is understood, is along the line out- 
lined some time ago. St. Louis county, 
which includes the city of Duluth. will 
get two additional senators and three 
additional representatives. Another of 
the new districts is to be carved out of j 
the Forty-third, represented in the sen- 
ate by Senator Young, whose colleagues 
in the house are Fosnes. of Swift, Stone, '. 
of Chippewa, and JacoV>son. of La- I 
Qui Parle. As now constituted th" 
Forty-third consists of Swift. Lac Qui I 
Parle and Chippewa counties. Under i 
the new plan Big Stone and Swift 
counties will be created a new district. I 
This is done to give the Second con- I 
gressional district, which has been de- i 
manding another senator, the repre- 
sentation it asks for. The arrangement 
of the counties in this form vvill also 
obviate a difticulty in which the Forty- 
third legislative district has been placed 
in connection with congressional and 
legislative campaigns. 

Under the new plan the congressional 
line will be made distinct. Swift and 
Big Stone counties being in the Seventh 
congressional district and Lac Qui 
Parle and Chipi>ewa is second. He'e- 
tofore the Forty-third legislative dit- 
trict has had Swift county in the 
Sev. nth ii-ngre.ssional district, and La ■ 
I Qui Parle and Chippewa counties in the 
Second. The total representation, it is 
understood, will be fifty-nine senators 
and 119 representatives, an inc tease of 
five senators and five representatives. 
The balance of the state, it is under- 
stood, is loft in practically the same 
condition, as regards the changing of 
counties. The committee adopted the 
report of the sub-committee, after it 
had been somewhat auietnled, I)y un- 
animous vote, it is undeistood. which 
means that there will be no minority re 
port opposed to reapjiortionment. The 
joint commilt(>e will now be given th ■ 
work of drafting a bill, v.hich. it i.- 
faid. will be inlruduceu in both branch- 
es of the legislature early next week. 

The friends of reaiiiwrtionment look 
upon the agreement of the committef^ 
on a plan as vry favorable to the pro- 
po.'-ition. and predict that a bill will be 
passed with little opposition. The re- 
port of the committee is drafted so a? 
to do absolute justice to all |iarties.

San Diego, Cal., March 25.— John L. 
Collier has returned to his home in Bel- 
videre, Boone county, 111., a disappoint- 
ed man. During thirty years of his life 
he has been vainly searching for his 
father, who left his home in Belviderfc 
in PVbruary, 1864. and was not heard of 
again by his family until a few week? 
ago, when the son learned that he 
located in San Diego. The

was prosperous at B-3lvidere up to 1865 
when his mother becamo an invalid' 
His father, then 40 years old, became 
infatuated with Viola Ilambridge, a 
domestic, and eloped with her to Cali. 
forma in 1864. and never raturned. After 
the death of his mother, John sought 
his father, but in vain, until Jan 1, 
when he heard from a circus man who 
had rc-cently been in San Diego that the 
runaway father was in this city After 
satl.sfying fiimsc^lf that this was the 
truth. John came here, but found that 
his lather had been dead several weeks

Tfilbet Monasteries and Some 
Very Queer Marriages. | 

The Indian Daily News gives extracts i 
from an interesting paper read before the 1 
Buddhist Text Society of India by the | 
honorable secretary at a recent meeting: ; 
Thibet abounds In monasteries and tem- ' 
pies. No other Buddhist country in Asia 1 
whether In the past or in the present 
^Dk /•""''l^^*' compared woth modern 
Thibet in the number of her Buddhist 
priests and monasteries. The number of 
monks In the monasteries of Thibet at 
the present day might be estimated at a 
million. According to my estimate, which 

'■^Jl^f^ ''•'*'"M*' °" '^Si'^^^^ '^ft by eminent 
Thibetan writers. Thibet has a popula- 
tion of 6,000,000; though the countrv <s 
nearly equal in extent and climate to 
Ru.ssia. its population is not larger than 
that of London. The proportion of t'le 
monks to the male population was. there- 
fore, one to six. If one-haff the population 
be females, then the proportion of its i 
monks to the entire population Is one ! 
to three. This appeared to me too large I 
a proportion for the monks. I, therefore I 
thought It safe to state the monk '• 
population was .''lOfl.oOij to make the pro- 
portion one to six. as it is held by some 
of the well-informeil men of Thibet. 

Though the number of monasteries is | 
so large, the number of nunneries Is d|s- 
proporti(malely small. It is doubtful if 
I here are even 100 convents in the whole 
of Thibet. We find that the 
monasteries, which have state endow- 
ments for their support, contain an aver- 
age number of on.' thousand monks in 
each monastery, but in the larger con- 
vents the average number of nuns do, s 
not exciK-d twenty. It mav be asked 
what may be the reason of this surpris- 
ing disprojiortion in the two of 
the institutions. The custom of polyan- 
dry, which prevails in Thibet, would 
rather suggest an increase of the nunner- 
ies, with a corresponding increase in 
I heir popul.itlon But, in fact, the verv 
reverse is the case. 

It has been a puzzle to European schol- 
ars who have taken interest In the mat- 
ter of the institutions of Thibet to ae- 
•ount for the number and occupation of 
the women who do not get hu!*l)ands. If 
ill the brothers in .1 family club togethei 
n matrimony :\Mth one wife, what be- 
•omcs of the majority of the female pop- 
il.iticm who remain unmarried? Durin.i^ 
my residence, as well as travels, in Thili- 
ct I paid .some attention to the subiect. 
As the way to we.ilth. fame and official 
power IS open to those who enter monas- 
teries to study religion and literature, and 
lo lead a life of ( elihacv, people find il 
humiliating to remain in their homes lo- 
lead a worldly life. They run to monas- 
'eries in large numbers, but onlv such an 
permitted to remain in them as can com- 
mit to memory the largest number of 
oages of the sacrtd works. So. manv 
come back unsuccessful and discomfited 
by failures. generallv. not liking 
to return to their homes, netake them- 
selves to trade and to service in distant 

Marriage is considered a very difficult 
ind troublesome institution in Thibet. It 
only takes place in families which pos- 
sess wealth. The eldest brother in a 
family marrie.s, and his .younger brothers 
are looked upon by the wife as so many 
junior husbands. .\ll hough the Thibet- 
ms are not subject to in the pro- 
portion as other nations are where iiolvg- 
amy prevails, yet the junior husbands 
crcnerally find it inconvenient to .sh.ire 
matrimonial with their eldest broth- 
er. So they leave their home and property 
in disgust. In some eases thev take sep.i"- 
late wives, relinoiiishing therebv their 
claims to ancestral propertv. The other 
brothers can only enjoy the same as long 
as they live with him and his wife. I w is 
present at a Thil»ctan marriage; th- 
father ..f tli.' bride, in giving her awav to 
the bridegroom. addressing his ritler 
^aid: "Henceforth my daughter becomes 
the wife of your .sons, both born and un- 
born. She will be ihejrs conjolntlv." In 
conseouence of th. tedious .•eremon'es 
and hmg terms of waiting befor.- getting 
the bride, and als.i troublesome condi- 
tions imposed upon the for he.- 
husband, marriage <el.lom takes place in 
Thibet, and the ni:;j.)ritv of men and 
women remain unm.irried.

Outlook Is Gond. 

City Clerk Richardson today received 
a letter from H. M. Myers written at 
C. R. Normandy, formerly of Du- 
Atlanta. Ga.. where Mr. Myres now re- 
sides. He is the vice president of the 
United Benevolent society, of which 
luth, i.** secretary- The business out- 
look there Is encouraging, he says. 

By local applications, as they cannot 
reach the diseased portion of the ear. 
There Is only one way to cure deafness, 
and that is by constitutional remedie.s. 
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi- 
tion of the mucous lining of the Eusta- 
chian Tube. When this tube gets in- 
flamed you have a rumbling sound or Im- i 
perfect hearing, and when It is entirely 
closed deafness is the result, and unless 
the inflammation can be taken out and i 
this fiibe restored to Its normal condition ! 
hearing will be de.^royed forever; nine 
inses out of ten are caused b.v catarrh, | 
whlcJi l3 nothing but an Inflamed condl- . 
tl'in of the mucous surface?. 

We will give one hundred dollars for 
any case of d«afneiis fcaused by catarrh) ' 
that cannot be ciired by Hall's Catarrh

Market Opening Was Marked 
By Irregularity. 

New York, March 25.— The stock mar- 
ket opened irregular but mainly lower, 
the anthracite coalers and grangers re- 
ceding fractionally, the latter feeling 
the effect of the decrease in the St. Pa;;! 
earnings of $117,000 for the third week 
In March. The trading was rather light. 
a disposition being manifest to limit 
ventures until the .scope of the trans- 
Missouri decision and the action to be 
taken by the railroads which arc mem- 
bers of the existing traffic as.sociatioi;-. 
are better understood. London quota- 
titms for -American securities showed 
better gains, but without exerting influ- 
ence iri local trading. 

1 The pressure jjigainst the grangers 
; became very severe after the initial 
, operations, and im heavy .sales values 

recorded declines of l(ai%c, the latter 
in Burlington. The withdrawal of the 
latter njad from various trallic asso- 
ciations, and rumors that other had- 
ing lines may take like action, ein- 
• K>Idened the bears who offered sUnks 
with considerable fnedoin. The general 
list also succumbed to the drive, but 
the losses were restrWted to fiaction- 
I Hi limits, except for Lake Shore, which 
j fell 1 and New Jersey central \\ 

cent. Around 11 a. 111. the 
, movement was exhausted and 
j era! fractional rally occurred 
; creased dealings. 

Xew Jersey Central was the 
of the speculation, and fluctuated 
, widely on moderate transactions be 
I ween 11 and 12 o'clock. The early de- 
cline was fully regained, but a reaction 
\otl% to 8,5»^ followed, after which there 
was another rally to 86Vi. The general 
list was rather quiet, but moved stead 
ily upward towards the London level 
on buying for that account, and s«ime 
instances the best prices of the morn, 
ing were obtained. Rubber preferred 
showed exceptional strength and gained 

2 per cent. Railway bonds were dull, 
but Increased actively. St. Paul Issue* 
showed improvements extending to 1V4. 
The sales to noon were 124,000 shares.

Nearly everybody knows that the 
Kaffir has an extra skin beyond the 
number apportioned to the white man, 
and the fact of thi.s additional cuticle 
may account for the extraordinary 
t.Fensibility of this race to phvsic:il 
pain, says the Cincinnati Enquirer. 
The following facts aie vouched for i>.\ 
a writer as bein.g absolutely correct: 

Tn a smithy near Bloemfrintein one 
afternoon .someinie noticed a strong 
and pungent smell as of flesh burn- 
ing. On inquiry being made it wa-; 
discovered that a stout Kaffir boy was 
standing barefooted on a red-hut 
horse shoe, which had somehow fall"n 
on the ground. Strange as it mav 
seem, he had not the slightest knowl- 
edge that the burning mass was be- 
neath his foot, and, although an enor- 
mous blister was soon raised he 
averred that he felt no nain what- 

-All black men have the reputation -.f 
owning thick skulls, but what will hs 
thought of the Kaffir who fell from a 
s fond story window, about fifteen feef. 
humping his head on the ground as h'^ i 
fell, and rose after a few seconds. I 
brushed the dust from his hair and 
pursued his way, laughing at the inci- 

'..Another instance of this extraor- ' 
dinary Insensibility to .suf:'ei-ing comi s . 
from a cycle makers shop in Johan- ; 
ncsl^urg, a KafT.r, in the course (if( 
his work, had th whole of his forefin- 
ger nail on the ri.^ht hand torn off bv 
the machi.if.ry. In an instant he! 
plunged 'he mutilated member into Ji I 
vat contain-: 'g boiling alum and bore 
the pain with simply a slight wince. ' 
By resorting to this course he showeci ' 
himself an adept in the art of self- 
cure, for a day or two later the finger' 
was painless, and the nail .soon .grew ! 
again. But the extraordinary part -itl 
the business is that a process whici* ' 
would pi-.d.aldy have made the ordiii- 
ar.v wliju- man lose conscifiusness di<l

revenue bureau Is that the finished 
articles on which the rebate has been 
allowed will be purchased by dishon- 
est people, and the alcohol contained 
in them recovered by a process of dis- 
tillation. This objection appears to be 
sound, but in reality aboslutely noth- 
ing is to be feared in that direction, 
because, when all the conditions are 
carefully examined, it is found that 
the amount of profit involved, which 
Is the tax. would be practically elim- 
inated l>y the following: items: 

(a) Cost of non-alcoholic inpre- 
I dients. which it is safe to say would 
I lose their commercial value, or depi^- 
I date in value at least 50 per cent by 
' the process of distillation. 

(b) Cost of labor and time. 

(c) Depreciation in value of alco- 
hol due to the characteristic odor of 
the drujrs, which it had held in solu- 

j tion. 

(d) Discount from market price of 
I tax paid alcohol in order to sell a con- 
I traband article. 

I All these factors would have to be tak- 
en into consideration, and It is conse- 
quently very clear that no one would 
be tempted to recover alcohol from 

t articles on which a rebate of the tax 
had been allowed, when nothing could 
be grained. 

Few people comprehend the diver- 
sified use of alcohol as a raw material 
for our manufacturers, independent of 
its use as a beverage. It will, perhaps, 
surprise many to learn that the! 
materials composingr the enamel on 
bath tubs are dissolved with alcohol 
■before being applied as a coating to the 
iron. Alcohol is. in fact, the material 
most generally employed as a solvent 
for organic substances. In medicine it 
is invaluable as a solvent of the active 
principle of many substances that are 
iTYsolubie in water, and would soon de- in aqueous solution. A few 
of the many articles which require al-

The readers of the News Tribune today 
were given a treat in the shape of legis- 
lative news reproduced from The Her- 
ald of yesterday. Of they were 
entitled to it yesterday morning, be- 
cause the reports dealt with legislative 
doings of the previous evening, but the 
News Tribune Is opposed to paying fat 
tolls to the telegraph companies. Nat- 
urally the same news appeared in th? 
St. Paul Pioneer Press yesterday morn- 
ing; It was telegraphed early in the 
morning to The Herald, and was in 
type in this office hours before the Press 
reached Duluth. This was done in or 
der that it might appear in the early 
mail editions of The Herald, which 
spares no expense to give all the news 
promptly to all Its readers. 

Having shown to its readers that The 
Herald Is printing interesting reports 
daily of the legislature's proceedings, 
the News Tribune should tomorrow 
devote a little space to an explanation 
why it mendaciously attacked The Her- 
ald's correspondent because he tele- 
graphed the truth about the consul gen- 
eralship in Hawaii, and also why it 
failed to inform its readers this morn- 
ing that Senator Davis had tele, 
graphed a confirmation of The Herald'a 

An article of this description might 
add a little spice to the silly twaddle 
which is now the prominent feature oi 
the News Tribune's editorial columns.

THB TAX ON ALCOHOL. . ination by the various municipalities 

It is probable that congress may form the subject of an interesting arti- 

conclude to revijse the present method;^ 
of taxing alcohol. That a revision 
should be made must be the conclu- 
sion of every man who makes a careful 
investigation r.f the subject. At pres- 
ent, a burden is placed on legitimate 
business by the heavy tax 
imposed upon all alcohol, no matter 
for what use it may be designed. Con- 
gressional action certainly should be 
taken to remove altogether the tax on 
alcohol used in the arts and manu- 
factures, while still securing for the 
government a sufficient revenue i)y 
heavy taxes upon alcohol consumed 
as a beverage. 

Commercial, or high test, alcohol 
has been selling lately at the distiller- 
ies, before the duty has been paid, and 
without charge for the packages, at 
the rate of about lo cents a gallon.

the cost of street lighting in New York

of Jl.S-W.OOO. The specific appropria- 
tion for this item is $1,222,821. to which 
are to be added sundries, which 
will probably bring it up to the total 
named. Philadelphia spends even more 
than does the city of New York in a 
year for lighting its streets and alky- 
ways, the total expense being S420.000 
for gas and $647.0<)0 this year for elec- 
tricity. These items collectively do not 
foot up to so much as New York pays, 
but while New Y'ork gets its supply of 
gas from seven different companies, and 
Its electricity for lighting from ten dif- 
ferent companies. Philadelphia owns its

Dr. W. P. Marshall, of Long Point. 111., 
in Chicago Record: The anti-tobacco 
cru.saders lift up their banners inscribed 
with sundry mottoes, to-wit: "The Vile 
Habit, " "The Filthy Weed," "The Sinful 
Indulgence," and so forth ad nauseam. 
Let the other si-^e have a word. No rea-!- 
onable man defends the intemperate use 
of tobacco any more than the intemperate 
use of language and disregard of truth. 
Argument against the abuse is no argu- 
ment against the projjer use of anything. 
Such arguments apply with equal force 
against the use of wheat bread, potatoes 
and corn as food. The universal Ani-r- 
ican dyspepsia, with all its suffering .md 
misery, is largely due to the excessive 
use of wheat bread, to the undue prepon- 
derance of starch in our food. This amv- 
laceous form of dyspepsia is stubborn and 
difficult to cure. Is this any argum-nt 
against the proper of wheat bread? 
Is the fact that a deadly poison— solanine 
—is constantly present in jmtatoes a valid 
objection to their use? Because alcohol is 
produced from corn and rye, ought we to 
vituperate those who eat these cereals? 
For other samples taite these asser- 
tions: "Tobacco. " we are told, "is a 
stimulant, leading to the use of alco- 
holic drink." Entirely false. Its well-as- 
certained therapeutic effect is directly op- 
posite. "Tobacco is filthy and loathsome " 
It has germicidal and antiseptic i)roper- 
ties which preserve it from corruption 
and decay longer than any article of 
food, "Tobacco smoke vitiates and poi- 
sons the air." Let us see. The empyr-n- 
matic products of burned tobacco are 
mostly pyridine and its compounds, with 
creo.sote and but "little or no nicotine," 
according to the latest authority. Hence 
it is antiseptic and much nearer that 
cleanliness which is next unto godliness 
than the intolerable breath of a germ- 
laden mouth which has not been disin- 
fected by this or other effectual means. 
"Its use dwarfs and dulls the intellect." 
Bismarck. Tennys(»ii. Carlisle, Grant 
Sh»-rman, McKinley and a host of shininp 
lights ha\e been on the verge of idio(y 
and the world knew It not until tlu> 
prophets spake. 

Per contra, it is true, nicotine is a 
deadly poison. A few drops will kill a 
in three minutes. It is verv .soluble in 
water, yet a man may chew the satu- 
rated end of a cigar all day long, vear :n 
and year out, and not fall dead. Do»^s 
this fact teach anything? Oil of tobacco 
is a virulent poison. Does the smoker get 
it? It requires distillation above the tem- 
perature of boiling water. If the smoker's 
mouth were .so hot. it lacks the condens- 
er. Other alkaloids obtained from to- 
bacco are conine, muscarine, sparteine 
lupuline. lobeline and pyridine, and the 
list of maladies in which thev can be 
used for the good of mankind is too long 
to enumerate here. Professor Potter says: 
"The use of tobacca in moderation, when 
under great exertion, aids in supportin-^ 
the system and lessening the sense of 
fatigue. Smokers rarely suffer from con- 

In intellectual culture, in poetry, senti- 
ment and refinement, in all the" arts of 
peace and war. an<l in the material wdl

nations stand pre-eminent. 1 do not here 
assert that tobacco produced re- 
sults, for the statement of the fact that 
its use did in nowise retard or prevv-nl 
them is quite sufficient for all the pur- 
poses of this argument.

Washington special to the Minneapolis 
Tmies: So-called biraetalUc senators have 
made a discovery, that the Dingley tariff 
bill is likely to kn<Mk all their plans for 
an international monetary agreement iii'o 
a cocked hat. The.v are very much 
alarmed over the situation, and do not 
see their way clear out of it. While thev 
look upon the tariff discussion now as 
fatal to any International agreement In 
the near future, they, being Republicans, 
cannot afford to antagonize tariff legis- 
lation. An examination of the Dingley 
bill shows that countries active 
interest it was hoped to secure in bringing 
about an international agreement will be 
the ones hardest hit by the pending tariff 
bill. Wolcott, Chandler and other Repub- 
lican.s, who are known as bimetnllists. 
are in a sorry plight in this matter, and 
they feel that unless .some radical change 
is made in the bill the chances for :in 
international conference are exceedinglv 
slight. Some few senators are outspoken 
upon this matter, hut not one has the 
hardihood to announce that he will fight 
for more favorable terms In the new tar- 
iff bill in order to conciliate Great Britain 
and (Jermany and bring about an Intern i- 
tional conference. Bimetallism with for- 
eight consent is not quite so prominent 
an issue as to make a senator run the 
chances of incurring the wrath of his 
constituents by opposing the tariff bill. 

Subscribers to The Evening Herald 
who do not get their paper regularly 
will please promptly report the matter 
at once to this office. It is the intention 
to have The Herald delivered promptly

the act. 

Reeves' Bill May Yet Be 
Made Unnecessary By An- 
other Proposed Law. 

J. B. Cotton returned from St. Paul 
this morning, where he has been to op- 
pose the passage of the Reeves bill, 
which provides for a tax of 5 cents a 
ton on iron ore. and which passed the 
house Tuesday. Mr. Cotton believes 
that the bill will fail in the senate and 
that it will never become a law. as the 
sentiment in the senate is opposed to 
taking from St. Louis county its pre- 
rogative of assessing and taxing the 
property within its borders. 

Asked concerning the sensation 
sprung in the house while the vote on 
the Reeves bill was in progress by Rejt- 
rest-ntative Johnson, who alleged that 
an attempt had been made to bribe him 
to vote against the bill. Mr. Cotton said 
that It was a ruse of the friends of the 
measure to influence those honestly op- 
posed to it to vote for its passage The 
scheme worked admirably for many 
country members who were pledged to 
vote for it after Mr. Johnson made his 
statement explanatory of his vote 
Johnsons story was so indefinite that 
no mvestigation of it could be made He 
did not know the name of the man who 
approached him and could give no des- 
cription of him. However, timid mem- 
bers who feared that to vote against 
the bill would cast suspicion upon 
them, were stampeded by Johnsons 

Mr. Cotton thinks it is possible thit 
a law will be enacted authorizing the 
state board of equalization to raise or 
lower the assessment of any property 
when it appears that it has not been 
given a just valuation by local assess- 
ors. This would do awav with the al- 
leged necessity for the Reeves bill and 
would make it possible to reach any 
and all interests that may have suc- 
ceeded in keeping property from being 
placed on the tax rolls at a figure ap-

luth (Jas and Water company, are in 
London. The purpose of their visit 
there is not explained to the pul)lic a*i

they are interviewing the bondholders 
of the company with a view to arrang- 
ing for the submission of another pro- 
position to the city of Duluth for the 
sale of the water plant. It would seem 
from the circumstances to be not at all 
improbable that the rumor is true \ 
large number of the bondholders of the 
company are residents of England, and 
possibly the representatives of the com- 
pany have decided to confer with the 
bondholders themselves instead of their 
representatives, as has been done here-

It is Foolish to Neglect Any Form ol Piles. 
Cure Them at the Beginning. 

Piles are simple in the beginning and 
easily cured. They can be cured even 
in the worst stages, without pain o^ 
loss of blood, quickly, surely and com- 
jWetely. There is only one remedy that 
will do it— Pyramid Pile Cure. 

It allays the infiammation Immedi- 
ately, heals the irritated surface and 
with continued treatment reduces the 
swelling and puts the membranes into 
good, sound healthy condition. The cure 
is thorough and permanent. 

Here are ome voluntary and unso- 
licited testimonials we have lately re- 

Mrs. M. C. Hinkly, 601 Mississippi 
street, Indianapolis, Ind.. says: Have 
been a sufferer from the pain and an- 
noyance of Piles for fifteen years, the 
Pyramid Pile Cure and Pyramid Pills 
gave me immediate relief and in a short 
time a complete cure.

George R. Wendling's lecture, "Saul 
of Tarsus.' at the Methodist church last 
night was listened to very attentively 
by a large audience. While it was not 
calculated to touch the popular chord, 
the lecture abounded with evidences of 
careful thought and study, and to'tht 
student of the history of the beginning 
of the Christian era was replete with 
interest. Saul of Tarsus, afterward 
Paul, the apostle, was stripped of the 
halo with which the church has .sur- 
rounded him. and his character as a 
man, a theologian, orator, philosopher 
and writer analyzed in a masterful 
manner. The many thrilling events in 
his brilliant career were graphically 
portrayed and his movements were fol- 
lowed from place to place with a rapid- 
ity that was at times confusing. 

To prepare his hearers for an under- 
standing of the Influences that were 
responsible for much of the early life of 
Saul, Mr. Wendling reviewed the priii- 
iipal events of history from the earliest 
times down to the birth of Christ In 
speaking of the Jewish race he paid 
them a high tribute and likened their 
influence on humanity to the gulf 
stream that has so temoered the clim- 
ate of portions of these continents as 
to reclaim them from the ice and snow 
of the polar rtgions and make it pos- 
sible for them to be the abiding plac€>s 
of great nations. Through long cen- 
turies of time the Jews clung tenacious- 
ly to their religion, worshipping one 
God unswervingly and eventually res- 
cuing the people of the world from 
atheism and idolatry. Out of the Jewish 
I religion springs Christianity, and the 
lecturer congratulated the world upon 
the fact that the wall of denominational 
prejudice for the Jew is fast breaking 
away and that he is at last being given 
the place in the great l)rotherhood of 
man to which he is justly entitled. 

Saul of Tarsus Mr. Wendling l)elievcs 
to have been the bravest man. and he 
said that if he were ruler of one half 
the kingdoms of the world he would 
select him as the commander of his 
armies because of his personal bravery. 
As to his pei-sonal appearance, the lec- 
turer is convinced that the -great apostle 
was not. as has been held by most his- 
torians, homely and insignificant in ar- 
pearance. and cited much circum- 
stantial evidence to j)rove that he was 
of commanding appearance, handsome 
and striking. He also holds that before 
on to Christianity he was

San Francisco. March 25.— Bob Fitz- 
simmons has found an "angel" in the 
person of a New York broker, who pro- 
poses to estalilish the "retired cham- 
pion" as instructor in a new athletic 
club at Gotham. Martin Julian said 
last night: "For months we have had 
plans under consideration for the exe-

of the fight at Carson. The building 
we propose to occupy is a 5-story struc- 
ture in the business center of New York, 
which occupies a whole block, though 
a small one. There is associated with 
us a certain rich broker of New York 
who is fond of sports and besides him 
only the owner of the building. Fitz and 
myself, knew of our j.lans. 

We propose to give instructions In all 
.sorts of athletic sports to the best 
of young men. The place will be fitted 
very handsomely with all of the luxu- 
ries and conveniences of a first-class 
club. It will be our to have 
from time to time, such contests and ex- 
hibitions of athletic skill as may be in- 
teresting to the m.mbers of the club 
and we shall offer .such inducements in 
the way of purses as will secure for us 
the best attractii'ns to be had 
Nothing, however, will be done that wili 
in any way confiict with the law. The 
building will be ready for use. Fencing 
athletic sports, rowing, riding, boxing 
and every other kind of athletic sport 
will be taught. will be mapnifl-

Prospects For Its Concert To- 
morrow Are Excellent. 

The sale of seats for the Duluth City 
l^and concert opened at the Lyceum to- 
day and was v..) y large. When the i)ox 
ufTice was opened there was a great 
crowd at the window. Proctorknott 
people alone took seventy-four seats. 
They will come down in a special car 
over the Missahe road. The sale indi- 
cates that there will lie a well filled 
house and this i.s fortunate for the hand 
deserves all the patronage the people 
can give. It has always been a credit 
to Duluth and on many occasions has 
effectively advertised the city. It is the 
invariable comment of .outsiders that 
the city which can support siK>h a band 
must be enterprising and progressive.

saw two vessels to the leeward, one far 
olT and close hauled, with topgallant 
sails set. while the other was rolling 
in the trough of the sea, with merely 
a goose wing in her lower maintopsail 
exposed to the wind. 

"I could see at once that something 
was wrong with the nearer ship and 
that the other one was beating up to 
her. The one beating up was looking 
for a salvage job— there was no doubt 
about that— and I ordered the man at 
the wheel to put it up instanter while 
the watch were sent to the braces and 
we headed down toward the derelict 
at about ten knots an hour. 

"The ship down to leeward was near- 
er than I was to the derelict, but I had 
the wind. I .saw him down boat to 
row for it. but I held fast to my sails 
until as close as I dared run. and then 
we came to the wind. 1 gave the deck 
in charge to Pilot Seott and lowered 
my boat and rowed to the prize just 
in time to climb on board and warn 
the oflier fellow off. He wanted to di- 
vide up with me and furnish part of 
the men to sail her into port, but, al- 
though I was already short-handed 
as to the crew, I determined that with 
the aid of the two pilots on board I 
would handle the Job alone.

.ship Dagmar— you will find her name 
in the Lloyds' Register back in the 
80'.s. She was half full of water, but 
she had a windmill pump and when 
Id set it going I found it gained on 
the. water till after fourteen hours she 
was dry.

make a job of it, and I ran two from

Chicago, March 25.— President E P 
Ripley, of the Santa Fe svstem. who 
returned today from a tour of insiiec 
tion of the entire s.vstem. substantially 
confirmed the report of a deal between 
the Santa Fe and the Southern Pacific 
by which the former obtains control „t 
what is known as the Mojave division 
(»f the Southern Pacifie, extending from 
Mojave to The Needles, a distance of. 
240 miles. ■ 

While the features of the deal have 
all been agreed to. the actual transfer 
cannot be made until the lawyers of the 
two companies work out certain detaili^ 
and decide on the legal form to be givei\ 
the transaction. The most important 
point on w hich they have to pass is as 
to whether the contracts to be drawn 
up shall take the form of actual trans- ; 
fer or of ninety-nine year lease. '
